I don’t know much about dresses…or pen nibs, but apparently together they create an impressive visual effect, as this Pen Nib Dress by John Nussey and Steven Tai illustrates.

795 pen nibs, mounted on tiny motors, are sewn into the dress. These rows of pen nibs are animated to created a hypnotic shimmer of movement which changes over time, varying the tempo, pattern and the overall mood of the piece.
