Earthly Mission

Veils Don’t Hide Faces


These amazing installations are from Benjamin Shine, who was recently featured at the Canberra Centre in Canberra, Australia, creating larger than life portraits using nothing but tulle (veils).

Entitled The Dance, the installation is constructed from over 2,000 metres (6,560 ft) of tulle and each sculpture is created through a process of pleating, layering, compacting and hand-sewing the material into shape. The finished works are then brought to life through back lighting.
