    Dan Keeffe: Crystallised Hair

Art: Genius! A kaleidoscope made of crystallised human hair...

Posted by Liv Siddall,

We’d forgive you for looking at this and going “ewwwww” because yes, you’re right, it’s disgusting. But it’s also genius. Dan Keeffe along with Amy Webster, Milly Bruce and Sam Part, have taken human hair and miraculously transformed it into crystals which have then been lovingly inserted into a kaleidoscope for your viewing pleasure. The results are, as you can imagine, pretty horrendously gross (think dandruff crossed with the inside of your shower drain plughole) but how good is that idea?! And kudos for those guys for getting some scientists involved, they’re always worth the trouble, those clever clogs.
