Gross fashion: Eyelashes made of flies’ legs

Of the gazillion things fake eye lashes could be made of, Jessica Harrison chose legs of flies. Now that, is creepy. Granted, flylashes was just a sculptural video, but putting fly legs on your eyes is still gross. As Harrison puts it, “Flylashes was intended as a play on the format of the Chimera, highlighting the use of the fly in the investigation of genetics and its similarity to the structure of human DNA.” Also, she mentions that no flies were killed for the making of this video, so put your protest cards away, everyone. Video after the jump.
