On a domestic flight in 2010, artist and photographer Nina Katchadourian impulsively put a tissue paper toilet seat cover on her head in the plane lavatory and snapped a picture. Your first thought may not have been, “Wow, this is totally like 15th-century Flemish style portraiture paintings!” but that was where she went with it.
The artist used her next plane trip from San Francisco to Auckland to snap a series of pics in her bathroom studio during the 14-hour flight. The results are pretty fantastic: a very serious Katchadourian poised with elaborately folded toilet seat covers on her head with black and red scarves used as backdrops.
