I started researching on weird habits that people have during visiting the restroom. My main thoughts were revolving around the idea of a public space, used by many different people, in very personal ways. So we all have our own “world” within a room that is frequented by many others. It’s like a social network where people don’t actually talk to each other about the things they do while they sit there, one after each other. It’s like a bad habit that liberates us from the inside: like smoking. We all know that is not the best, but it gives us comfort.
I created this ceramic and glass water pipe that resembles a toilet water tank. the viewer is able to inhale the smoke that is pumped out of the tank, through a sink.
