Impressive Life-Like Bug Sculptures Created From Human Hair

I found this story completely by accident while reading an architecture blog and scouting for content for a client. The phrase “sculptures made from human hair” just jumped out at me, and I thought, “What could one possibly make with hair?” A quick Google search produced the website of Adrienne Antonson, a clothing designer and human hair sculptor. In her clothing line STATE, she focuses on using repurposed and recycled materials. I guess it makes sense then that she uses a recycled, repurposed medium for her sculptures too. She writes, “My sculptural work focuses on making life-like objects from human hair and other non-traditional fibers. I work with human hair because of its immediacy, its beauty and flaws.”

As an artistic material, human hair is remarkably resourceful. The material never fails to attract and repulse almost simultaneously, which is a response I enjoy. I find it infinitely amazing to read how artists think about their media and works. I’m on the “repulse” side…not strongly…I’m not going to vomit or anything, but when I look at these incredible works of art, the snarl of “ewwww” crosses my lips. At the same time, I can’t stop looking at them! I don’t know why I find this so gross…after all, I love my wool socks, leather boots, and cashmere sweaters.

A quick trip back to Google, and I’ve produced more hair sculptors… this must be a “thing!” There’s a woman who knits strands of hair together into beautiful, delicate leaves. Others create solid castle sculptures and Chinese landmarks, or busts of President Barack Obama. Then there are the people who make jewelery (yes, jewelery to wear, ewww) from hair. The fascination isn’t held just to actual human hair, either. There’s a “cool” human hair font, in case you need to make a brochure for what…the abominable snowman? Think I’m crazy? Here’s the proof.
