Agitation Study

Agitation Study is a project in multiple parts: a sculpture, documentation of performative use,  an installation of the two combined, and a video. The study investigates social agitation as manifested in material form through felting, the agitation of fibers resulting in a strong bond.

Collecting- for the study I went door to door in the 162 N. State St building collecting hair from residents, people living together under a constant state of agitation.

Process- I then carded and felted the hair together in small masses, later felting the masses into the hair of two residents in order to bind them together. I then documented the pair struggling to complete daily tasks while joined.
