Tree Leaves Made From Human Hair

Sometimes I come across some strange and unusual ways that people are using materials to create art. Sculptor and installation artist Jenini Shereos created these very unique, weightless tree leaves that were created by tying together individual strands of human hair. That's right human hair. Here is what she had to say:

In this series, the intricacies of a leaf’s veining are recreated by wrapping, stitching, and knotting together strands of human hair. Inspired by the delicate and detailed venation of a leaf, I began stitching individual strands of hair by hand into a water- soluble backing material. At each point where one strand of hair intersected another, I stitched a tiny knot, so that when the backing was dissolved, the entire piece was able to hold its form. Creating this work was a very meditative process for me, as I found myself lost in the detail of the small, organic microcosms that began taking shape.
