Atelier Hoko (Author)
Science of the Secondary is an inquisitive approasch towards uncovering implicit conditions that exist in our experience of the everyday.
"The life of toilet paper is fundamentally short-lived; smeared with shit and left to disintegrate in smelly water, it is found in almost every toilet as a sign of hygienic assurance. Even though its absence is a major cause of panic amongst toilet users, the toilet roll remains a lowly object and ever so often, a cause for embarrassment or awkward giggles when encountered or merely mentioned. Considering how excreting faeces is an everyday affair for all, such sentiments towards a roll of tissue destined to keep one’s butt hygiene in order seems rather immature..."
