Man With Rare Psychological Phenomenon Draws The Faces He Sees Everywhere

Artists Keith Larsen experiments with sound and media, but he's also an amazing illustrator. In a post for Bored Panda, he explained that he has a psychological condition known as Pareidolia, which causes your brain to react to visual stimulus by creating a more recognizable pattern.

In Larsen's case, he mostly sees faces where most people see a bag, or a pile of rocks, or a door handle. Like this duck face:

He also writes poetry, captioning that laundry animal with, "Grab my beak if it’s laundry you seek. You barely see me, maybe once a week. How can I not have this disappointed look? I dry your clothes as you read a book. I’m dryer duck, and for a buck, I dry the shirts you tuck. Handle my bill if you will, tweak left for your garments. I’ll see you next week, but please, no more vomit."

You can see all the unexpected characters scattered throughout Larsen's life on his Instagram account @thefaceswithinplaces, and they're really, really great:

I'll never be able to look at the water cooler the same way again.
