My Head

Class of: 2024

Major: Fashion Design BFA

Medium: Sculpture

Faculty: Carol Peligian

Prompt: Making a head piece.

The inspiration for my headpiece came from the culture of letting newborn babies sleep on hard pillows to change the shape of their heads. I was one of those newborns, so the shape of my head is sharp and abnormal, and I can hardly accept it. This is a difference in aesthetic standards between people of my generation and the last generation in my culture. The sculpture is an exaggerated version of my head. I am making it to show how the deformity of aesthetics.
