Sound for Video by Bart Hess

Designer Bart Hess and filmmaker Ruth Hogben joined forces for their contribution to SHOWstudio’s Punk film season.

Inspired by punk’s association with metal adornments Hess built a garment entirely from studs, pins and chains. Hundreds of magnets were glued on to dancer Eric Underwood, attracting over 80 kilograms of steel bits like instant metal embroidery. Hogben captured the creative process and used the footage to create Pins and Needles.
