You Are the Doorway….in progress

There’s an upcoming show I’m in at the Albuquerque Railyards on November 1st–a one-night-only event of installation work–You Are the Doorway. (You can read about it here on the events page.)

I’m having a fine and complicated time developing a project for it, and have been constructing small birds’-nest-forms out of hair, inspired by Victorian sentimental hairwork. Here are the first two finished pieces, made using my own tresses. The rest–some seven or so?–will be from locks donated by friends, who immediately leapt to my aid, scissors virtually in hand, when I put out the call.
