American fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist Nick Cave is best known for his incredible Soundsuits: wearable fabric sculptures that are bright, whimsical, and other-worldly. Using everything from twigs and human hair to plastic, beads, and feathers, many of the suits resemble African ceremonial costumes and masks. Chicago-based, Cave is currently the director of the graduate fashion program at School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
