Nick Cave – Costume Design in Motion


A short while back a friend introduced me to a works of visual artist Nick Cave. It’s tough to categorize Nick because his work is truly unique. You could call him a costume designer but what he does is so much more than that. I look at him as an analog motion designer. The costumes he creates are called ‘Soundsuits’. Moving or dancing while wearing one of these costumes generates noise. In many ways the dancers create their own soundtrack while wearing the suit.

Nick’s work has appeared in various shows and galleries.

Here is a video interview with Nick about what he does.

Along with a couple of ads for exhibits of his work.
