an urban module for social reflection

The “Public Toilet of Thoughts” is the first use case scenario which settled in and appropriated the Box for Expression in July 2021. The idea created as an experimentation in-between research and art in order to explore how could people respond to the challenge of expressing and sharing feelings and experiences about the pandemic.

“Social distancing as a consequence of Covid-19 pandemic has escalated social isolation of contemporary metropolises. We wanted to create a symbolic space of reconnection between the passerby and the neighbourhood, and also with the community that inhabits it”.

“The public Toilet of thoughts” is a totem of the time of incubation. It is a space for expression of our private thoughts and feelings in the public space. It challenges us to participate in a collective ritual, by communicating small snapshots from our internal world.”
