Clean Hair (2018)
My intention for this work was to create a conversation between two conflicting ideas; cleanliness and dirtiness. Hair is often considered by many to be unhygienic, by encasing a cleaning spray bottle with hair, it creates a dialogue between the two materials. While creating this piece I tried to neatly wrap the hair around the bottle, but as I continued to add more hair, it became increasingly difficult, almost as if the hair was telling me that I was not going to tame it. I decided to let go and let the hair take more control of how it encased the spray bottle, allowing the hair to present itself in quite an unsettling way like hair often does if it’s found somewhere that it shouldn’t be.
