“Idaho’s Hairy History: What can artifacts made of human hair teach us about the past, present, and future? Part 1”

w/ Zen Hansen, hair artist and researcher of hair anthropology


synopsis from the speaker:

From Victorian hair wreaths to cowboy lariats and hair hygrometers, learn about the history of crafting with human hair in Idaho.

We’ll explore what shapes and compels us to recognize hair as a fiber resource beyond our heads, what we’ve made with it, what we are currently doing with this remarkable material, and what the future holds.

Join me as I untangle every hairy aspect from the artistic, cultural, religious, scientific, psychological, and functional details of Hair Anthropology.
