Key words from the brief:
- Referencing the work of Keith Larsen and Justin Sutcliffe, document any instances of Facial Pareidolia that you come across
- Take photographs, do drawings, collect the objects if this is appropriate
- Be playful and open to discovery
What I did
I treated this exercise as purely visual research and therefore did not spend any time taking a broader more detailed look at the work of Keith Larson or Justin Sutcliffe.
My own photographic reference was taken on my iPhone over a period of several weeks.
Keith Larson reference
Justin Sutcliffe reference
Justin Sutcliffe has a whole series of photographs he calls ‘Things Are People Too’ that deal with found instances of facial pareidolia. They can be referenced on his website: https://justinsutcliffe.pixelrights.com/albums/pdhQuc/things-are-people-too
My own research
Here are the best selection of instances of facial pareidolia that I could find.
