Kickass Woman Of The Day: Artist Jessica Lagunas Embroiders With Her Grey Hair

Kickass Woman Of The Day: Artist Jessica Lagunas Embroiders Her Grey Hair

You can color them, you can pluck them, or you can let them grow wild atop your head like Gloria Steinem. But artist Jessica Lagunas had different ideas for her grey hair: she plucked each strand and saved them up each year and used the hairs to embroider her age on black canvas. Beginning at age 33, Lagunas began an annual tradition of embroidering her age with the grey hairs atop her head — she calls it an “ongoing life project.” Other cool artworks by Lagunas about the concept of femininity include a video where she continually paints her nails with red nail polish for two hours and another where she continually applies red lipstick for an hour. Very cool. [Jessica Lagunas]
