visual research for information spaces
This project was born out of endless discussions about the size of the
toilets in Artez University of Arts. Out of mundane yet bizarre dances we all performed behind the
closing door. My goal was to drag this odd motion into the spotlight and see what happens.
First, I recorded two of my friends and myself entering and exiting the toilets. As the doors opened
inwardly into a tiny space, it was a struggle to capture. Then, I created animated scores of movements of
our legs and the door following behind.
Naturally, after studying the toilet, I decided to
recreated it accurately to millimetres, but this time behind a glass wall for everyone to see. This small
research of space was rooted into how ridiculously inaccessible some public spaces are, even if they are
as fundamental as a bathroom.
