Hair Today

A few years ago I made a picee called Rock n Roll Heart in which a female mannequin's head spun back and forth on a turntable, the hair gently lifting as it does in those hair product commercials. 

Here are a couple of looped snippets from such commercials, as time goes by the irritation ends and they start to phase in and out in a pleasing fashion. When you have seen enough click inside the frame and the movies will stop.

Nice, like Filmontagen 2 by Peter Roehr

Indeed though the phasing adds an other dimension

Yes we're entering the 4th Dimension. Visual phasing too as they do some things in my browser that I'm not sure are 'intentional' as a section of roughly one quarter of the bottom part of each video appears below the videos after a while. Perhaps a visual 'echo' which is spatial as well as temporal.

Interesting, not sure why that is happening....

ah: l'oreal .. or is it wella?
is the sound a randomized loop?

Hi Sam, the clips are from Asia, but might be L'oreal Asia. The sound is what was on the soundtrack originally - so as the loops phase so does the beat........
