sometimes happy, sometimes not

Eyebrows are a crucial element of nonverbal communication, as they define someone’s facial expressions and permit us to read emotions from a greater distance. In public, people often tend to avoid expressing big emotional reactions or hide their true emotional state behind set phrases or superficialities.

In this work, collected eyebrow hairs are used as material for emotional communication in form of a text. The large format photograph of the actually placed hairs brings public attention to a subtle personal message amongst loud and colourful advertisements.
