Bather in a Coded Stream

Bather in a Coded Stream is suggestion, association, invitation, intention, acknowledgement. 

 

In all the rooms of the house, the bathroom remains the most private space and the least touched by digital presence. It is a raw canvas where we face ideas of time, identity, natural processes, and material fetish. An environment to renegotiate incorporation of digital tech in our lives and house fetish objects that allow us to merge our private behaviour and the digital world. 

 

 

 

 

 

This collection is an immersive installation comprising of three objects. Digital Totem acts as a physical marker in changing landscapes. Through digital control of the water system, it remotely connects the user to the object. Filter Mirror merges private development of identity with hyper-personalization. Fetish Towel provides traditional translations of material power and ingestion, providing comfort and tactility. 

Bather in a Coded Stream is a suggestion of how objects change your behaviour, an association between the natural and digital world, an invitation to break the status quo, an intention of consciousness, an acknowledgement of our individual desires.
