One hair is trash. Million hairs is a woven record of my self.

I regularly lose a lot of hair.

Often, I’d get lost in thoughts while twisting it.

As hairs slide off, small rings form around my finger.

I started collecting the rings.

I decided to take this ritual into a public performance.

One Hair One Purpose is a 3-day long-durational performance taking this daily ritual into a conscious act of transformation.

Losing myself, repurposing myself, I invite the audience to co-experience and participate in the destruction and rebuilding of (my) physical transformation.

One hair, the simple, single element that makes any transformation possible. It always starts with one thought, one action, the celebration of one disposable event.
