Isaac Contreras’ The Creeps is a series of miniature hair pieces made with the artist’s own hair.
 
Shampooed, blow-dried, straighten, dyed, brushed and sprayed; these avatars play with the social conventions of gender, race or status associated to hairstyles, somehow directing a queer critique to the current economy of self representation.
 
Half human and plastic, the complicated identity of each piece is entangled with social meaning, symbolic associations and genetic makeup.
