Inspired by a salt-covered gown featured in a 1920’s adaptation of S. Ansky’s The Dybbuk, Israeli artist Sigalit Landau submerged a black gown in the salt-rich water of the Dead Sea and left it there. The final product is something like a wedding gown created by nature.
She went back every few months to check the progress and photograph the results, which chronicle the salt crystals forming and developing. As you’ll see in the pictures below, the transformation is strangely beautiful.
