Artist Augustina Woodgate used clumps of hair to create the 3,000 bricks it took to build the two Medieval castles pictured above. From Inhabitat: "Debuting at Miami’s Spinello Gallery, one piece, called Tower (left), stands around four-and-a-half feet tall. Made of tightly bound hair bricks, the piece looks like clay at first glance, with varying shades of brown and grays stacked perfectly together. Blond-haired donors provided the bricking for the windows, and the senior set contributed a band of white hair for the tower’s top.
Woodgate’s other castle structure is called Sandcastle (right). The hair used in this piece is less structured – a molded top caps a controlled pile of hair below. Its realism is uncanny – the hair strands tangle in a mess that resembles a decaying and crumbling castle, neglected over time." Gorgeous.
