Do I really know you

?

Sometimes I feel like I don’t know anyone in deep even though they are close friends to me. Sometimes I want to know what they think about me. I want to know how much they honest are, I want to know how they real are.

Bathroom

Bathroom is a place where people can be totally honest about themselves. No matter who they are, all of them are naked in the bathroom. No jewelries, no Birkin and no Rolex. Bathroom is a place where people excreted all fecal matter, which includes all pretenses. It is the place that people can reveal with all kinds of instincts such as pureness, sex, and even violence. It is the place for thoughts, it is the place for sorrow, it is the place for sex and it is the place for emptiness.

THESIS

MEMORY

Thus a bathroom makes people feel all the senses they have without any pressure and evoke some feelings they have. I want to explore all the feelings and thoughts people have in their mind in a bathroom and create visual designs by graphics. I am going to survey my bathroom and all the feeling about it. I am going to explore bathrooms other people have. I am going to take pictures of their bathroom and try to see their personality. I am going to survey all the thoughts and feelings people have about bathroom and describe as graphic words. I am going to find something that no one really thinks about bathroom and suggest the idea of it to the others by using design words.

Family shower

Bathroom is the place where family can bond. It is the place where all good memories has existed such as family shower or the scene that a dad shaves his beard. It is very personal space. It is also a place where has happy, warm and fuzzy memory.

Overall, as a designer, it is important role to find something ordinary and put new meaning of it. For me, a bathroom is the place where I want to explore and find new meaning of it.
