Waiting for red pigtails subtly intertwines text and image. The book is based on Julia Peirone’s still image movie of the same name. The text (represented in the film by one voice) is essential for the structure and content of the work. Different girls appear and the text describes their looks, what they wear or do. After a while the shape and content of the text begins to change. Words are reversed and made ??into new descriptions of the same girls. With a slightly surreal tone, the text takes the viewer behind the surface.
