In Lithuanian folklore, if a bird steals your combed out or cut hair, and uses it to make a nest, it will cause you a headache. As part of my joint exhibition I decided to re-enact this old story and survey the results. From 14 friends and myself I collected enough hair to make a small nest which was stuck together using PVA glue and a twig. 24 hours later I asked my friends if they’d had a headache; 3 had.
