Book #10: Zonule

This book was editioned in August of 2012 in Portland, OR — When I was very young my father owned and operated a barbershop and has spent the majority of his career working in the beauty and haircare industry.

In grade school I remember visiting salons all over the midwest with my dad and I recall piles of promotional material stacked throughout his house. Within these boxes were booklets and catalogs filled with hair; synthetic locks arranged in an array of browns, yellows, reds and blacks. In retrospect I realize that these menus of color were tools of deception—affecting what we think of as natural—allowing for superficial changes in identity by ignoring authenticity and originality. There is far less to consider or be concerned with when we color code ourselves and the world around us.

“He who claims to see colors independent of their illusionary changes fools only himself, and no one else.” — Josef Albers from Interaction of Color
