A book of my nightly journal entries written in strands of shed hair shaped into letterforms.

Long-term sleep deprivation from school, life, and health issues has most notably led to the increased fallout of my hair and memory decline. I keep a journal every night before I sleep to practice remembering and preserve my present memories for the future.

I made the bioplastic pages, which have a semi-transparent quality, by hand using supermarket ingredients and a stove. I supplied the hair from naturally shed strands off of my bedroom floor. My hair is naturally thick and does not hold shape well, so each page took several hours to complete.
