5. “I want to build a connection between Chinese characters and Roman alphabet by using different forms of long black hair.”

6. “Just like putting ink on rice paper to draw Chinese Characters.”

7. Unfortunately this isn’t all natural hair - “I couldn’t find any women with hair that long,” says Diao. The fiddly bits of the letters are completed with extensions.

8. It’s not clear, however, why the model is naked in the photographs.
