When scientists aren't working on curing world hunger/cancer/AIDS, they create dresses that will dissolve in water. The "fabric" is made from polyvinyl alcohol, which will partially dissolve into recyclable (liquid?) material when washed.
During a forthcoming exhibition, up to eight dresses made from these textiles - minus their wearers - will be lowered into enormous goldfish bowls where they will be left to liquefy.Minus their wearers? I think we're missing the point here. –Mark Wilson
