2011 | my hair/your hair | 4 lightjet photographic prints
Family portraits often expose complex interpersonal dynamics. To symbolize these intricacies, my hair becomes a wig for each of my family members. Wigs conceal and reveal identities temporarily. My ill-fitting wigs point to our differences, while at the same time suggesting the permanent connection between our common genetic information. Photography allows me to capture these momentary sculptures and to create an illusion that joins our heads to make one.
