What shapes a public toilet?

What lurks beneath our bodily processes in a toilet?

What goes out from our bodies and what comes in (physically and metaphorically)?

How our bodies are choreographed by the toilet?

How our behaviour is designed by society?

Alchemy In The Toilet: The Haunted One is a research-based sound installation in the toilet cubicle, that focuses on the relationship between the toilet space and our bodily responses, revealing the power dynamics hidden in the everyday spaces. The toilet is not merely a utilitarian architecture but also a socio-cultural surrounding, having a direct impact on our behaviours, and influencing our social interactions.
