About this work

Description

Sculpture of the brain made from layering donated human hair into a mould of a model brain. This hair is from a female donor and retains its natural brown auburn colouring. "Hair brained" is an English idiomatic phrase used as a derogatory term to explain someone's possibly irrational thought. The brain measures approximately 18 cm (W) by 17 cm (H) by 18 cm (D).
