Uh, that’s not a butterfly. That’s a butterfly sculpture made out of hair. Seattle artist Adrienne Antonson creates “resourceful, sustainable, meticulous and pretty” insects using only human hair and glue.
Antonson decided to work in hair because, “As an artist with a deep interest in sustainable and self-supporting systems, human hair seems the most immediate and true material. I find the historical implications and various uses of human hair fascinating. I am also intrigued with the attraction/repulsion response the material evokes. It is sentimental, challenging and honest.”
