Finding Faces: Creative Exercise for NID Preparation


Do you often look at the Moon or the clouds and find a face staring back at you. Seeing faces, recognizing patterns, familiar shapes etc. in random objects is a very common psychological phenomenon and is known as Pareidolia.

Yes…you probably guessed it right ! Last week, we did the above exercise with our students. It was a creative exercise: Students were supposed to click pictures of inanimate objects which remind them of a face or where they can see facial features mainly the eyes & nose / mouth. Our students had a lot of fun working on it. And they did come up with some brilliant results !

Also read about inspiring artist Victor Nunes: His works are extraordinary, and proves that creativity can be brilliantly expressed through mundane, everyday objects also. 


Below are some of the assignments of studends preparing for NID.
