Time Lapse Film: Wonderland

published on 26 May 2008

From January-February 2008, Professor Helen Storey installed a 'dissolving dress' at the London College of Fashion, gradually lowered into a tank of water and destroyed over the course of the month. Recorded by nine cameras stationed around the installation, capturing a still every seven minutes, this time-lapse film showcases the remarkable qualities of Storey's groundbreaking polymer fabrics before your very eyes.
