Jaw-Dropping Portraits Made from Layered Pieces of Tulle
Entitled The Dance, the installation is constructed from over 2,000 metres (6,560 ft) of tulle and each sculpture is created through a process of pleating, layering, compacting and hand-sewing the material into shape. The finished works are then brought to life through back lighting.
Tulle (English pronunciation: /tuːl/ tool) is a lightweight, very fine netting, which is often starched. It can be made of various fibres, including silk, nylon, and rayon. Tulle is most commonly used for veils, gowns (particularly wedding gowns), and ballet tutus. [source]
