BEAUTY: Art--Vladimir Nikolic
Serbian conceptual artist Vladimir Nikolic has hilariously paired photos of automobiles with images of himself making the same perceived face (it's all in the brilliant and subtle placement of his lips and eyebrows). It's clever because I have always felt that cars have faces. I do not anthropomorphize everything (I have a friend who sees faces in almost every inanimate object) but it is quite easy to see that cars have faces: the headlights are clearly eyes and the grill is the mouth.
