Toilets of New York

Toilets of New York began in a bathroom. I came to notice that often, bar and restaurant bathrooms were heavily decorated, aesthetically pleasing experiences. Some person had spent hours choosing the objects, wallpapers, and style. I took photos.

I began amassing photos of bathrooms over the course of several weeks and eventually launched a tumblr to catalogue the images. I began to notice patterns emerging and bathrooms that fell into categorical experiences: graffiti covered bathrooms; highly curated bathrooms filled with object d’art; institutional bathrooms striving for ascetic cleanliness.

Each of these bathrooms participate in a narrative with the user and serve to indicate the type of experience that should be expected.
