Several machines hang side-by-side, feeding long close-up images of hair through reprogrammed office shredders. The hair passes through the shredders at a similar rate to natural growth. The strips blow in the breeze from a nearby door opening and closing. Gallery staff occasionally need to trim the "hair" so it doesn't reach the floor.
This piece was shown as part of Bayside City Council's "Artrium" travelling exhibition program in 2017, and as a finalist in law firm Hall and Wilcox's emerging artist program in 2018. It is ultimately intended as a home installation, though. The sculptures are available to rent on a yearly basis. As part of the rental, I install a machine for each household member and create extended images of their hair which will completely grow out over the course of a year.
