Vogue's Suzy Menkes visits the IVH atelier

Looking out over the bay at the art of nature while she works on scientific exploration seems like an interesting contrast. So I asked this Dutch designer of hyper-modern materials and futuristic fabrics, what does this naturalist vision mean to her?

Spatial Reverse - ANother Magazine Movement film

Iris Van Herpen x Russell Maliphant x Warren Du Preez & Nick Thornton Jones

For the SPATIAL REVERSE dance video we felt inspired by the idea of a dancer inverting the space around her by dancing.
The first look that she is dancing with is like a magnetic liquid metal bath pulling her, its not clear if she is moving the liquid or that the liquid is moving her.
Its conflicting, like a fight.
Then she inverses, instead of matter moving her, she is moving the halo matter in the space around her. Each movement she makes is expanded in the space around her by tiny little strings of energy radiating.
