Fall out

Jan 2011

I made this ball from synthetic fibre some time in December, and didn’t know what to do with it initially. In some respects I think of it as an ‘Afro puff’ (a term I remember from the 90’s). I showed it to a friend of mine, who really got into the precision of the thing– the perfect sphere. He encouraged me to take it to the barbers.

I like my synthetic ‘Afro puff’ because it’s not real, and it resembles the spot (that unit) I’ve been drawing repetitively. I suspect the shavings might have a place in the process, so I won’t be going to the barbers yet.
