Anyone with an eye and heart for art would take a leap of faith to achieve it big time. That’s why an Israeli artist, Sigalit Landau was inspired to take her artistic skills to the next level. So, she took her chance to create a magnificent masterpiece and to take meaningful and lasting shots of her project, which she called the “Salty Bride”. It was patiently done using a black gown submerged in the waters of Dead Sea for three months. Who would have thought it would turn into a crystal filled white gown? Well, the natural properties of the Dead Sea’s salinity created its dramatic transformation, and it’s absolutely amazing.
The London’s Marlborough Contemporary is exhibiting these project’s beautiful shots.
Below you can see the gradual salinization process the artist was able to document by checking at regular intervals during the span of three months.
