Intricate Baroque Paper Wigs by Russian Artist Asya Kozina

Russian Artist Asya Kozina, the genius designer behind “Mongolian Paper Wedding Costumes” continued to impress us with her latest work – baroque paper wigs. In this series, Kozina sculpted arrangements like flowers, leaves and even an exceptionally intricate sail-boat. They are delicately placed in the mass of extravagant paper hair, adding a sense of fantasy and whimsy to the conceptual compositions. When asked why baroque paper wigs, Kozina said, “historical wigs always fascinated me, especially the baroque era, this is art for art’s sake aesthetics for aesthetics — no practical sense, but they are beautiful.”

Water Wig: An further exploration into Water Weirdness

Californian-based Tim Tadde, created this project entitled Water Wigs which is described as “a further exploration into water weirdness.” The spirited set of visuals depict explosions of water balloons lit with a miscellany of colors, creating eruptions of simulated liquid hair on the heads of bald men. The guys’ expressions are hilarious considering they have water balloons pegging them in the head while the photograph is being taken. The final products have such great animation and use of vibrant colors across the series. As each explosion occurs, new forms of water-based hair appear. Giving these men a psychedelic head of water hair was no easy feat: Tadder says he used a laser and sound trigger to capture the right moments for each subject to create just the head of hair that fit best with the face.
