Passepartout is all about documentaries and visual stuff I find worth seeing.

Seat Assignment – 15th century Flemish style portraits taken in plane lavatory

This project is delicious! Nina Katchadourian took these 15th century Flemish style self-portrays in the plane lavatory during flights. She got the idea spontaneously while on a domestic flight in 2010, she took the photos with her cell phone and there’s really nothing else than this lady playing with toilet paper and other things found in the lavatory.

It is exactly the kind of thing I love the most, spontaneous, original and funny, simple but not that simple. The photos have been exhibited at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery (that’s in New Zeeland!) and the project is ongoing.
