Small Bizarres No.3 - Anthropomorphic Light Switches...


Wether the correct term is anthropomorphic, humanoid or something else, these light switches found in my apartment remind me of faces, whose 'noses' I interact with daily. They each have also a surprising amount of personality... I haven't named or started talking to them as of yet, but one never knows...

foof! i wrote such a long comment on this one that didn't go through! ok i'm going to try to remember what i wrote. well, i know i named your wall sockets for you. hmmm:

topmost one is a little bewildered looking and is up-side-down. he also has a weak optic muscle in his right eye so i named him upsy turvy wiggins.

the one on the bottom left is the village gossip. he has a big nose with a mole. his name is bob.

the one on the right has a grin and an amiable air about him. he also has a unibrow so i'm calling him frieda.

I think Bob looks a bit Finnish - so, if I was to call him something, it would be 'Pirkka-Pekka-Perkele'...

I thought I was crazy, but at least i'm not alone.

I always see these faces. And the strange thing is that once you 'see' it, you can't unsee it.

Whenever i'm designing a facade, I sometimes spend hours trying to avoid seeing the face of a robot. That sounds silly, but it can drive me insane sometimes.
