Floating Fabric

Japanese artist Rie Hosokai, of Daisy Balloon, creates intricately woven dresses, from inflated latex balloons. She deftly twists and ties small inflated balloons together, effectively “knitting” a fragile, but flexible and wearable material. She is now showing some of her work as part of a charity exhibition in Tokyo – “Piece for Peace,” through January 9th.
