Artist Submerges Black Dress In Dead Sea For Two Years, It Emerges In Pure White Salt

August 25, 2016

Israeli artist Sigalit Landau submerged a black dress in the Dead Sea in 2014 as part of an eight-part photo series entitled Salt Bride. Every three months she would take a photo of the dress as it gradually become covered in salt crystals until, two years later, it was completely coated in white. How about that! Still, no word how many times Ariel tried it on and pretended she was a person with legs while nobody was around, but I guarantee her father wasn't happy about it.

Keep going for shots of the whole process.

    I really think we need to start distinguishing between an artist - a person who creates actual art - and an "artist" - a person who claims to be an artist but is instead just pretentious.

    They should have had a cloth mannequin frame as well and could have said they found Lot's wife as a prank.

    Many Christians would buy bull shit like that.

    Well Judaism, Islam and Christianity since the story of Lot is in all their religious texts. But hey, don't let me stop you from drinking your hateraid.

    Its probably salty enough, now's the time to deep fry it.

  • Meh

    That's amazing, now if there were only a way to keep it in that form and state.

  • HelpingHand

    Once it dries, it will retain its shape.

  • Meh

    Obviously, but it won't be wearable without the salt breaking off. That was my point.
