Keith is off to China tomorrow for a few days (sad face.) But those long flights can get so boring. As luck would have it, my friend Al sent me a link today to an amazing and hilarious artist who recently spent a long flight camped in the toilet taking self-portraits in the Flemish style.
About this project, Nina says 'While in the lavatory on a domestic flight in March 2010, I spontaneously put a tissue paper toilet cover seat cover over my head and took a picture in the mirror using my cellphone. The image evoked 15th-century Flemish portraiture. I decided to add more images made in this mode and planned to take advantage of a long-haul flight from San Francisco to Auckland, guessing that there were likely to be long periods of time when no one was using the lavatory on the 14-hour flight. I made several forays to the bathroom from my aisle seat, and by the time we landed I had a large group of new photographs entitled Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style.'
