I like it. (especially the "trying not to get caught washing a bunch of doll heads at the laundromat")

Who hasn’t found themselves sorting a bucket of doll heads?

She really has a good screen presence and explains things clearly and entertainingly.

Very cool. Though the idea of buying dolls (even old dolls) just to cut out their eyes is pretty unnerving. Glad it was a woman artist or I would be seriously creeped out.

Also I suppose I shouldn't be surprised at what a large percentage of the dolls were blonde, but it still surprised me.

The image of all those heads pouring out of a big potato sack was....odd! I love the sign at the end, and am guessing that the rest of the heads are being used for another project, given that the artist spent a lot of time washing them.

Can’t you just buy dolls eyes?

These are 85 cents a pair.

I think making use of waste is part of the point.

Now I wonder what you can make out of a thousand creepy eyeless doll faces. A very sad water feature?

From her website, her whole art thing is "tinkering" with other people's trash.

Regarding the artist's use of salvaged, trash-picked items; from the third link:
I love disassembling products to learn more about how they work, how all the pieces come together, it's like a puzzle to me! It all started with just a casual exploration of parts and then I started rearranging the dismantled product pieces into new characters, objects and stories. I've made over 30 videos so far.

Most of the products you see are old broken products that others decided to throw away. We consume too many things to the point that we forgot the amount of work that was put into bringing even the tiniest pieces of things! We rarely see what's inside each product thus treat it as one whole part; not as a plastic cover, with buttons, vibrator motor, mic and so on.

This makes it easier to throw things away, one thing goes to waste, and not many.

This is so great. And just the right amount of slightly unnerving.

I like her stop-motion breakdown of what makes up a doll's eye. And then she gives an explanation of what went into animating the hair on the doll's head.

I like it. (especially the "trying not to get caught washing a bunch of doll heads at the laundromat")

Heh. On the other hand, I'm not sure most people would attempt to interrogate someone who was washing a batch of doll heads. How would that conversation even go?

"Sooo...doll heads, eh?"

”Excuse me, are you going to be using the dryer?”

This looks like a set piece from PeeWee's Playhouse. I am simultaneously delighted and terrified.
