Magical Glow-In-The-Dark Fluid Dress [VIDEO]
Artist Charlie Bucket has created a dress made from 600 ft of plastic tubes and fluorescent water. The colored water is pumped through the tubing to create a fluid dress with shifting liquid patterns (you can marvel at the glowing results in the video below). While we’re not sure how practical it would be to lug about a giant backpack containing the pump necessary to keep the water flowing—seems like it would leave one looking a little more Ghostbusters and a little less haute couture—we can’t deny that it certainly looks awesome. One part sweater dress, one part glow stick, and one part giant crazy straw. Would you wear it though?
We first encountered Bucket’s work at the Vimeo Festival and Awards last month where he received the Captured award for best film documenting a performance or work of art. That short film (see below) was a proof of concept project for the dress above, using a similar technique where colored water creates patters and designs on a small, cylindrical knit structure.
