Your Hair is Waste

I knew I wanted to use hair for something for the longest time, but could never figure out where to use it. Who could’ve guessed it would turn into a poster about protecting marine life? I sorted through 25 pounds of hair from a NYC hair salon, dividing the locks by color, texture, and length. After this, I slowly layered hair in configurations that would allude to the form, values, and biological features of the whale.
