This Artist Put A Dress In Dead Sea For 2 Years And The End Result is Truly Magical

Ever wonder what will happen if you put any one of your dress in salty water for months? This artist has the answer. She is Sigalit Landau, an artist from Israel.

Sigalit Landau put a black dress from the early 1900s into the Dead Sea for two years in 2014. The black dress turned white from the salt as you can see in the picture. The project was inspired by a play called The Dybbuk. The story tells about a young bride whose soul is possessed by an evil spirit. The story was written by S. Ansky in 1916.

The underwater images were taken by photographer Yotam From. To take the photographs several feet under the sea, From had to weigh himself down with 150 pounds of weight.

The photographs are to be displayed at London’s Marlborough Contemporary till September 3, 2016. Here you can see the glimpse of the dress’ creation –
