about

Private rooms and public spaces.

A selection of recordings of restrooms.

Fear not, listener, there’s nothing smelly here. The focus is not on what usually happens in restrooms, but on the quiet stillness of the room itself, and how it speaks out and resonates in murmurs and hums, in buzzing and whirring. The public space outside never fully disappears, but echoes softly and quietly through the walls. It’s solitary and private, secluded and isolated. Lock the door, sit down, relax, and retreat.
