Jar of Hair

FullSizeRender 2

The idea behind filling a jam jar with hair came from watching a documentary about Trichophagia, the compulsive eating of hair associated with Trichotillomania. It’s also subtly responding to ‘Artist’s shit’ and how if i was well known, each strand of hair could be sold at the price of gold. However, this will probably be the last piece that will directly involve my hair. I plan on opening up my work to a wider audience by expressing emotions associated with impulse control disorders in a way that is be more relatable and hopefully create a better understanding.
