We are now half way through Iris van Herpen's 7 day live broadcast from SHOWstudio. The project has seen van Herpen collaborate with Nick Knight to capture beautiful high speed footage of Daphne Guinness being splashed with clear and black water. We broadcast this footage being scrutinised by Knight and van Herpen to find the particular frame that would provide a template for van Herpen's newest dress. Since then, she has been creating the 'splash' dress from scratch. The project continues until Tuesday when we will stream Nick Knight capture Daphne Guinness once more, this time in the completed dress.
All the while, we have been putting your questions to Iris, revealing her inspirations, her fears and her hopes for the future. Submit your questions on the project page now to find out more!
