THAT TIME I SHAVED MY HEAD AND WORE MY HAIR AS A BEARD

Up until this point in my adult life, I’d always had long hair. Something about moving to the desert and watching several other girls liberate themselves from long tangles inspired me to join the head shaving club. Then Halloween was coming up and I can’t quite remember now how I got the idea, but instead of donating my curls (the noble route), I procured a quantity of double sided tape and got to work weaving. Looking back, it was the beginning of a long relationship with tape as a primary art-making material—and I can confidently say, the most magical, if not a little itchy, All Hallow’s Eve.
