The book is an attempt to enter into dialogue with the buildings we move in and live between. If we recognize something from our own body in the architecture, it is easier to relate to. If only small features of the facade remind us of eyes, it helps us to enter into dialogue with the building. The feeling that the house is looking at us arises.
The book tries to prove that houses have faces, concrete faces with eyes, nose, mouth. Types with special characteristics and moods, creepy, happy, sad etc., but it can also be seen as a special paranoid reading of the world, where everything matches, with human physics, and confirms us in our urge to mirror us in the environment. Most of the photographs are taken by Randi and Katrine even from widely different places, while a smaller part of the pictures are found on the web.
The book's focus is not the art photography, but the actual accumulation of evidence of the connection between the human face and the house, as well as the pleasure of seeing all the faces and studying the differences and generalities of the facades.
It's about seeing something that is there or not there, just as when looking at clouds -
