Melanie Bilenker




The Victorians kept lockets of hair and miniature portraits painted with ground hair and pigment to secure the memory of a lost love. In much the same way, I secure my memories through photographic images rendered in lines of my own hair, the physical remnants. I do not reproduce events, but quiet minutes, the mundane, the domestic, the ordinary moments.









Melanie Bilenker uses strands of her own hair to create lines and shapes, a method of drawing  illustrations which she then turns into jewels.  Find more information by clicking here and here and visiting her website.


La Melanie Bilenker fa servir el seu propi cabell per dibuixar línies i formes, després les il·lustracions creades amb aquesta tècnica les converteix en joies. Podeu veure més informació clicant aquí i aquí i visitant el seu web.
