BA (Hons) Interactive Arts

Roushay Homayoun-Fekri

The meticulous detail involved in the production of my work requires patience and endurance. I find I am driven by a desire for perfection, shown by the rigorous application of individual strands of hair to a surface.

Using hair is essential to provoke a reaction in the viewer.  Hair is something an audience can easily relate to, however when it is presented in an unfamiliar context it immediately becomes unattractive and grotesque.  Placing hair in an unusual environment detaches its femininity and sexual connotations.

Looking particularly into religion and fashions influence on hair, my relationship with the process became a way to communicate how disposable these issues are today. I find I am able to communicate this through my practise in a contemporary way, demonstrating how art can also be disposable.
