"When I was young my mother told me that birds would collect fallen hair to build their nests. She only stopped trimming my weathered ends on the patio, when home grown haircuts were no longer cool. I'd thrown away all the shoeboxes filled with dry leaves and unhatched eggs. We grew older and squeezed lemon juice through our hair to look like summer, sweet and sticking to our sweaty necks. Green from chlorine and shoulder length back-to-school haircuts. Suddenly I was grown and no one cared when I wanted it black or blue or normal. When the tangles turned to woven nests I snipped them gone with scissors and no one was the wiser. Lifeless locks smothered the drain, so I picked out the foreign strands between two barely touching fingers.

Growing. Growing. Growing.

They keep coming back like they never even noticed all the birds and the blue. Cresting and ebbing like unruly waves on a sun kissed beach, shimmering with churn and froth of emotions that we thought were only ours. Exploring so that in our insistence of being cautious, we do not disallow ourselves to be fragile in our expressions and tender in our emotions.

'All walls endless waves' is an exhibition showcasing the recent works of first year master students at crafts-Konstfack. Investigating the weaves of experience and exploring ways of what has been and what could be. I think of my grandmother's hair that doesn't move much anymore, her silver curls like steadfast slinkies. I never thought about her having a haircut before, but she's had maybe 200 and yet it always looks the same. In the loop of quiet growth, gently it creeps onwards."
