This video documents the beard/hair-progress from January 1st to June 20th, 2016. There is no audio for this video. Most of the stories about bears and human rituals around bears centers on transformation. So, on January 1st, 2016 I shaved my face and head. I've been taking a picture of myself everyday and posting the daily picture - along with a fact about bears - on Instagram. On the Spring Equinox and the Summer Solstice, I made animations to show the progress of Beard and Hair. I'm doing it for the whole year. It's all part of BEAR - the 4th performance from The Unreliable Bestiary - a performance for each letter of the alphabet, each letter represented by an endangered animal or habitat.
