Time During The United States is an ongoing hair drawing series that is a record of time after the artist moved to the United States. As the artist’s hair was dyed blond before she moved to the United States, the blond part of her hair becomes an indication of the past and the newly grown root that is black becomes an indication of the accumulated time in the United States. The phrase, Can Time Solve Things, is drawn using only the black roots of the artist’s hair and its size increases in proportion to time.
