Artist Six: Nagi Noda

Nagi Noda was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1798, and passed away in 2008 due to surgical complications from injuries caused by a traffic accident. She is known for being a pop artist and director. Her work includes music videos, short films, and commercials. In addition to Noda’s video work, she was involved in fashion and created a series of “hair hats.” These consisted of animal-shaped sculptures, made by hair weaves, real hair, and wire. 

It is a tragedy, that Nagi Noda’s life was cut so short; she had much potential and was successful in various art fields. Although, a lot of her focus was on video work, I found her series of “hair hats,” to be both extraordinary and creative. I am left in awe and am fascinated with Noda’s accomplishment of constructing detailed animals out of an unconventional material such as hair.
