FOUND HAIR ELASTICS TRANSLATED INTO SILK SCARVES
The project started as a snapshot collection of lost hair elastics. Surprisingly many of
these elastics you can see in the streets. This is probably the most popular thing to
loose. For a few years I was taking a picture every time I saw one.
These scarfs are documentations of such events in two cities.
I’m collecting and combining these elastics into a net with an
intention to bring the lost thing back to the female body.
A small object could say a lot about the person, a situation, a city life even...
In all my work I try to capture attention to the detail that seems unimportant, but I
believe, that this is the most valuable attribute.
The project consists of two 100% silk scarves created for two cities: Copenhagen and New York.
Size 95x95 cm, produced in France
