These pieces were made using my own hair, which fell out in copious amounts during my journey with infertility. Although I wasn't conscious that these were reflective of my experience at the time, I have come to realise they now form part of that patient narrative. Taking direct imprints through both print and digital means, these explore the physical qualities inherent in the material itself. I was interested in its abject nature; a substance that grows from inside the body, transgresses our rigid borders, linking cleanliness and dirt, beauty and horror, life and death. Hair is merchandise in the global marketplace; a material which can be miraculously full of body and vitality, yet mine was lifeless, disconnected and discarded. These pieces are reminiscent of female reproductive organs, but fuelled with a sense of embodiment, as layers of entrapment holding vulnerability, enhanced by the fragile nature of this material.
