On letting go and renewal.

Hallowed means holy, and holy means set apart. Just as a snake goes off alone to shed its skin, so too, this work is about shedding as a private, sacred act that results in the changing of oneself. This work is made for viewing on an endless loop to emphasize the excess amount of discarded hair. Transformation is often not a pretty or comfortable process.
