Everyone needs to experience Born, Old, Sickness, Death. This project is a sustainable project and I have used hair as my main theme. For the cancer patients, wigs are quite important to them during the cancer treatments. The treatment will lead to damages of hair and they used wigs to make them look prettier. Nevertheless, after they have recovered, the wigs will be leftover and become a waste. So my idea is to collect all these used wigs from the recovered cancer patients and recreate them into a piece of fabric. I recolored the wigs and used lots of machine and hand stitching to accomplish my goal. The colourful colors is like a rejoicing to the patients.
