Or, Objects as metaphors; instead of using the object in question for its appropriate function, we played around with what could do and what each of those actions could symbolize.
For instance, hair as food – insatiable gluttony on one end, delicate desire on another. But perhaps it’s really a commentary on food itself. Artificial, genetically modified, squeaky clean with chemicals and preservatives – nothing short of dead cells in a way.
Or hair in a lovers’ embrace. Personally, I see those particular photos as a statement and reaffirmation of more women needing to band together, for each other.
Hair, also used to blind yourself from what you see – to make a statement on our ever increasing detachment to the world around us. Avoiding the truth at all costs by simply shutting yourself from it.
