Hussein Chalayan: Wig

A very big challenge this job, for an art project ‘I am sad Leyla‘ by Hussein Chalayan, and displayed at ‘Galerist’ in Istanbul, the team made a wig that and changed styles . Fringe  and  hair length grew  and reversed  again. We had layers of scull caps with to cope with the different styles and with on board motors and controllers.

 

The team was made up of; Engineers Joe Scott and Guy Stevens, Fabricators Janet Burns and Helly Mc Grother, controls by Matt Denton, Hair consultant Darren Evans, props by Ann Pilbean.
