Body Language

by Abby Wendle


American women’s fear of body hair, and the pains they take to be rid of it, reveals much about our attitude toward beauty. Erica Rasmussen creates clothing using hair and other objects that will eventually decompose. Her wearable art confronts our history of body image obsession and fears of aging and physical decline. Here, she talks about her work with Abby Wendle.
