THIS stumbled upon some of these amazing pictures on the world wide web and what a sight! We tracked them down and discovered Eyes as Big as Plates.

Eyes as Big as Plates is an ongoing collaborative venture between Riitta Ikonen (Finland) and Karoline Hjorth (Norway).

Finnish artist Riitta Ikonen graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2008. She has since had installations at Tate Britain in London, developed concepts for the London 2012 Olympic Delivery Authority and exhibited most recently at the Photographer’s Gallery in London and the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki.

Karoline Hjorth is based in Oslo and works as a photographer, writer and sailor. She graduated from University of Westminster, London in 2009. Her photographic work has received the Deloitte Award at the National Portrait Gallery in London and exhibited last year in Tokyo, London, Oslo and Kiasma in Helsinki, amongst others. Her book Mormormonologene (Nana Monologues) was published in 2011 (second edition 2012).
