“Collection” by Sam Ticknor (2014)

Assignment,Student Work,Submission — SamTicknor @ 12:45 pm

Over the week, I collected knots of hair that I found around my apartment. With four long-haired occupants, these hairballs are not in short supply. Often, hair that has been removed from the body is considered ‘gross’ or’disgusting’. As someone who is interested in knotting and weaving, I find a different kind of beauty in these forms. I photographed each ball and post processed the images in order to emphasize the delicate lines that can make the clump so beautiful. Art relies heavily on context.
