This renowned Chinese artist produces these designs by of detonating gun-powder charges onto the Issey Miyake dress, leaving a residue of scorch marks and ash, reminiscent of traditional Chinese calligraphic ink drawings. 1998 at the Fondation Cartier pour l'art Contemporain, Cai arranged Pleats Please dresses in the shape of a coiling dragon on the floor, sprinkled them with gunpowder and then detonated the charge.
These patterns on the clothes were then photographed and later printed onto Pleats Please dresses for commercial sale.
