Scanography: Self Portraits via Scanner!

Standing in single file lines, cleaning lunch trays, and turning in essays every week? Booooooring.

Us? We’d rather relive the fun parts of high school (like that time we stuck our face in the copy machine and made MILLIONS of copies).

Russian duo Timur Akhmetov and Yulia Yukashova agree, so they created an online gallery called Face Your Pockets.

The instructions are simple: place your face along with the objects in your bag or pockets onto a scanner bed and scan away. They call it scanography.

The results are like those of an anthropological study!

Who’d have thought that a body’s most essential belongings could say so much? Who are these people who cart Kermit dolls, sequins, and plastic animals in their purses?… Because we’d kind of like to meet them!
