Many of us have had the experience of sitting on a toilet in a public restaurant or bar and seeing messages scrawled across the walls, but have you ever thought about documenting it? This tour does just that, challenging visitors to think about the potential of toilets in an unconventional way.
At the opposite end from tourist-attracting murals lies latrinalia: bathroom graffiti. Scrawled in the privacy of the toilet, latrinalia is free from aesthetic or monetary concerns. Different types of messages and artwork emerge on bathroom walls, reflecting both their location and audience. Writings may be tags, encouraging, self-expressive, witty, or even political. From gas stations to universities, this tour examines the way these messages provide valuable insight into private thoughts and interactions.
