laser cut

performance, 2020

Laser cut is an art performance about the digitalisation of haircuts.

“While confined at home due to Covid-19 I took the opportunity to autoexperiment on myself. As a creative I had thought of taking control over my hairstyle in the past and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.”

Will digital rapid prototyping enter the hairstyle businness? Think of a system where we can scan, digitally model and rapid manufacture our haircut.

The head as a canvas. The actual performance is a mixed intervention combining the physical shaping of materials with light projection.

With live camera view of his head the artist projects a laser mapping show experimenting with his own haircut graphics. Sound is generated by the projected graphics.
