    Philip Karlberg: Pay Ex (detail)

Philip Karlberg's charmingly expressive still-life faces are a fun Friday treat

Posted by Rob Alderson,

We’ve obviously seen this kind of thing before, but Philip Karlberg’s still-life faces for Pay Ex are still utterly charming. Through the simple arrangement of everyday objects, Philip creates a set of oddly expressive visages which speak volumes about our capacity for apophenia – the willingness to see human characteristics in inanimate objects. Proof that once again if you hire the right kind of creative, there is no such thing as a hack topic or approach.
