“The Dance” by Benjamin Shine

“The Dance” is constructed from over 6,560 feet of tulle, commonly used for veils, gowns (particularly wedding gowns), and ballet tutus. Each sculpture is created through a process of pleating, layering, compacting and hand-sewing the material into shape. Relying on the structural properties of the fabric alone, the works are entirely made of tulle and thread. Details of the faces and figures are only revealed through the contrast created by the back-lighting.
