A Year of My Hair

April 1, 2017

Hair is a part of the body, but its function is little more than decorative. Especially for women, head hair is considered to be very desirable, so we grow and groom it with care. On the other hand, body hair can be considered shameful, which leads people to want to cover or remove it. Once hair changed status, it has become disconnected from our bodies, we tend to treat it with disgust - even though it has a lasting presence that not only outlives our bodies but even defies death and decay.

This work incorporates a part of my body into the creative act. From animation to video, from newsprint to light design, I make “hair” change to an individual character in different languages. The experience between the beautiful and the grotesque fascinates me, especially in respect to our connection with hair. I find it interesting how hairs can create a natural pattern(personality) and I am intrigued by the social norms that guide and shape our collective opinions of our tresses.
