Photography assignment for an article about the phenomenon of people seeing faces in all kinds of things.

Whistler – it takes a long time for a man to look like his portrait, London (2012).
The title both refers to the face that seems to be whistling and to the name of the London based painter / writer James McNeill Whistler (1834 – 1903), whose quote is in the subtitle of the photo.

Performance ‘The title is a drawing. The drawing is an undefined network.’ By Clara Saito –

You can see some images of the festival on her blog:…/
