Nick Cave Brings Art, Sculpture to Life With 'Soundsuits'

Clip: 04/24/2012 | 5m 22s

Chicago artist Nick Cave says he has always been fascinated with items cast off by other people. The Missouri native and his team assemble thrift-store finds into life-size creations that are part sculpture, part costume, which he calls "Soundsuits." When you see one, Cave wants you to wonder, "What am I encountering?"
