Testament

In the family room closet, strands of human hair hang on the clothing rod.  This references the famous story of Samson and Delilah, and Samson’s loss of strength at the cutting of his long hair.  I am also interested in human hair as a material because of its identifying qualities, and its concentration of DNA. It is physical evidence of the life of an individual, and remains intact and uncompromised long after death. On the floor of the closet are the freshly cut tips of each strand of hair.
