Felting Human Hair

Felting process of donated human hair for my graduating exhibition.

Well, it has been a very busy time recently, hence no blog posts. Lot's of essay writing, theoretical reading and art making, family visiting and my job, it has been difficult to find time to just take a breath! But, finally I am getting a chance to get back to the felting.

This is a film of the process I go through to felt human hair for my final work, 90 minutes of felting in to around 10minutes! I have been experimenting with sound recently too, I have played around with the sound extensively through speeding it up, to cutting it away and attaching different parts to different visuals. It was a good opportunity to practice before I work on my final films for the graduating exhibition.

Hopefully this will  give you an idea of the lengthly process of felting in an amusing way!
