Nick Cave Soundsuits
I discovered Nick Cave's soundsuits a while ago in a book I have on contemporary textiles. However, they recently caught my attention again recently, particularly after looking into Native American Kachina Dolls. I like the otherworldly, monster like quality of them and the way they combine a whole multitude of unusual materials. In addition, I'm also keen to explore Buffy's 60's and 70's persona, and have been looking at vintage craft books and magazines. In particular wacky, eccentric craft that could only belong to that era. Granny squares galore, crochet madness, and a multitude of colours. Nick Cave's soundsuits seem to really sum up these two aspects of Buffy's life that I am interested in exploring.
