    Catherine Losing/Kate Fotis: Scrunchies

Catherine Losing and Kate Fotis put scrunchies round food – and it's ace

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Growing up with an older sister, scrunchies were an ever-present if slightly mystifying presence in the house. They would turn up everywhere, in different colours and patterns, and were oddly satisfying to try and bend out of shape. The otherworldly oddness has been compounded by this brilliant, absurd project from photographer Catherine Losing and set designer Kate Fotis which sees them arrange said-hair ties around various foodstuffs – spaghetti, broccoli and a pineapple for example. Simple, stupid, splendid stuff.
