“My work is a comment on and a reaction to the societal restraints and pressures placed on young women […] This piece examines the dualistic relationship between an individual’s mental and physical health […] I use synthetic hair because human hair weaves support a dangerous and depressing industry of buying from humans […]My work is based on the preciousness of hair and it would be deeply unethical for me to illustrate my point by taking away someone else’s hair.”
