Fluid Dress from Charlie Bucket on Vimeo.
Two years ago, I got the opportunity to visit the workshop of Minneapolis artist Charlie Bucket and see his fascinating efforts to knit plastic tubing into wearable art that could then be pumped full of colored liquid. The last time I saw this stuff, he had a very simple, very loosely knitted prototype dress made up, and hadn't totally figured out how to control the movement of fluid. Now, just look at it. Bucket's done some amazing work. I'm so pleased to see such an awesome end result!
Check out his Vimeo page to see what this evolved from. There's a couple videos from two years ago showing an early skirt and the basic, original knitted shape.
