ART + CULTURE: Pressed behind glass, Nina Beier’s human hair wigs become preserved artifacts frozen in time 

Created by Danish artist Nina Beier, this untitled series consists of human hair wigs pressed behind glass. Like a pinned insect or pressed flower, the wigs, once alive, are now transformed into inanimate objects to be examined and archived.

"The slowly grown hair has been flattened and processed for eternity, and marks the definitive end of a hairstyle, a period and a mood"
