The Study of Hairbands

I have spent a lot of time looking at knots and elastic bands. I became interested to see if I could discover something new by looking at the elastic bands from different viewpoints. This ‘other’ that I am hoping to catch is perhaps something akin to Adorno’s ‘Nonidentity’: the part of the object that eludes capture by the concept. It became an investigation of language and what different conceptual systems can say.
