Witch’s Hair: A Study Of Mosses, Lichens, And Wild Women

Mosses flourish wherever they please. They made the beds of our ancestors, covered wounds, and provided nourishment. They continue to thrive today, regardless of our interferences.

Witches Hair is a creative nonfiction piece and research work that uses memoir to delve into the intergenerational relationships between women within a matriarchal family. The project also studies some varieties of moss and lichens, which act as metaphor, allowing for a feminist-leaning reflection on behavior that refuses to fit into the social mold, and resonates through generations.
