dabi

"dabi" is a part of my wig-series and it is made of piece of broken glass. This series is an ongoing project in which unusual materials have been used in order to create hairstyles and looks with a twist. We are surrounded by so many things with supposedly established purpose. In this series I want to challenge such regularities and present new usages for some of those materials. We are exposed to an abundance of banal objects on a daily base. They are quite common on its own, or in small quantities. If there is a higher amount of those objects, suddenly they can be combined to something new, that is more and bigger than its parts. The initial shape and usage become a lesser concern because a new form will emerge. In this series I use exactly this kind of common objects to simulate hair cuts and stylings. It was a conscious decision to use headgear because for a majority it is the most basic but also most important body decoration.
