(Video link HERE.) We discovered performance artist Nick Cave recently and are smitten. As one YouTube commenter wrote: “imagine a world where people wore these to work … lol that would colour up our lives a little”.

It’s not just the joy the his Sound Suits evoke; we’re inspired by how the first Sound Suit emerged unexpectedly from a pile of twigs…

…and Cave’s philosophy — the WHY of Sound Suits:

I want to use my work to be a vehicle for change.

I want my work to bring together communities, diversity.

I want to get us all back to this place where we dream…again…

…and how they make people rejoice in the moment (Video link HERE):
