First, I make the pillow, then I get a haircut, and then I stuff the pillow with my hair and make a cute little pillowcase to go with it.
“I normally work with found objects, altering them in some way or drawing them but with this piece, I am interested in my role as an artist, literally putting myself into my work. I am also fascinated by the idea of another person owning an item stuffed with my hair so they will, in a sense, be owning a part of me that I chose to discard.”
