Artists Who Incorporate Bubble Wrap into their Work
The design firm Lo Siento played with injecting liquid into bubble wrap, but instead of paint, they injected colorful water. They made letters in the bubble wrap resulting in a really cool font
Helmut Lang made a bubble wrap jacket in his Spring/Summer 2003 collection.
Suzanne Jongmans also made clothing from bubble wrap, but it was not current fashion. She re-created many medieval and Renaissance clothing styles with bubble wrap and other shipping materials.
