My project explores my own relationship with my hair, whilst approaching issues such as, the over-sexualization of women in advertisements and working between the line that decides what is grotesque or beautiful. My fascination with my hair began when I thought about the positive reaction to my hair on my head, and the opposition that is the reaction received when people are confronted with loose hair. My hair is a big part of my identity and this project has allowed me to look upon it in depth, collecting a whole jar of my hair strand by strand I reflect on today’s society and confront it by weaponizing my hair and evoking the visceral emotion.
