Bathroom Stall Wisdom

21 March 2016
Serena Hovnanian shares with us some of the most profound bathroom wisdom she has had the pleasure of encountering in what is otherwise a fairly mundane environment.

Bathroom stalls. The mundane places of everyday life where we usually all find ourselves taking a shit. In universities, though, students often magically transform these public spaces using simply a pen. Depending on the stall and/or location, one can find a variety of material scribbled on the walls of the bathroom stall inspirational quotes, truthful insights, humorous patter or collective correspondence between visitors. In these acts of marking, the sanitary space becomes a lovely and very intimate portal between strangers.
