with images of storefronts of beauty parlor and
barber shops from Chinatown and the Lowest East Side
in New York City, the video takes the viewers into
the almost mythical hair culture of the local
community. Accompanied by a soundtrack of "Heart
Sutra" chanting from a Buddhist monastery, HAIR CUTS
explores the interior of human hearts through the
architectural mapping of sites seen.
