Hair and nails.
This is an assignment for my fine art class, Rethinking Art, with Tom Laduke (he looks like Moby/ Billy Corgan.) The assignment was to create an unconventional self-portrait. This is a collection of nervousness, doubt, worry, etc. The nest is made entirely out of my hair. I didn't use anything to hold it together, just a whole lot of patience. And the nails are from some of the people who I specifically worry about.
I'm sorry about the lighting, I planned on taking a photo of it with the gallery lighting during class but when I came back they were moved.. and I am only so tall.
I had a lot of fun with this. When I have the time, I want to make a more accomplished version of it.
