Imagine, hair. The elusive, coveted “good” hair. On some days and for some people, that is my hair. Or was. Or can be. But you should know by now – Don’t. Touch. My. Hair.
For, I am my hair. A collection of memories twisted with thread, bundled in intricate knots and layers of life’s undulations. My kinks and twists hold secrets. Pain and joy; that is mine to reveal.
Created during a series of open studio sessions, I invited the community to wrap and hitch knot thousands of yards of recycled yarn, thread, trim and ribbon on 100’ of cotton ropes.
More than 100+ participants have already imbued their essence, becoming a part of the rope, as we discuss the trials and tribulations of our gray hair, straight or curly hair, thinning hair, wigs, weaves, crochet braids and locs. We have found a common denominator amongst us all, HAIR.
