Got a Girl Crush On: Nina Katchadourian’s “Seat Assignment: Lavatory Self-Portraits in the Flemish Style”
Improvising with materials close at hand, Seat Assignment consists of photographs, video, and digital images all made while in flight using only a camera phone. The project began spontaneously on a flight in March 2010 and is ongoing. At present, over 2500 photographs and video, made on more than 70 different flights to date, constitute the raw material of the project.
I can’t gleefully look at this enough! Nina makes due with the limited space and accouterment of an airplane bathroom and creates these beyond clever improvisations of Flemish-style paintings that really freakin’ hit it. She’s also a talented artist who creates a lot of environmental and animal inspired work (like her super adorable “Mended Spiderwebs” series).
