The Stress Tress
This Photogram collage art piece and the series depict my journey of capturing my Hair, as a metaphor for stress, conflict, and psychological mind state. This series also reflects the incorporation of the abstract artistic element, the hair with a camera-less photography technique on a light sensitive material, giving rise to color and black & white photograms.
Through this series of photogram compilations, I wanted to emphasize the unique patters, forms, and density of my hair, considering the opacity of the subject, in determining the variations in the highlights and shadows.
Through these photograms, I also wanted to showcase the nature of hair in general, as they usually get messy, tangled and get all over the place just as a disturbed human psyche.
