Handling Hotel Bathroom Origami
I have just returned from the GEL Conference in New York—a fantastic opportunity to listen, meet, and interact with many wonderful and fascinating minds. Remind me to tell you about the game Werewolf: a parlor game on the surface, but one filled with intrigue and issues of trust and paranoia. But I digress.
The purpose of today’s post is to introduce you to a new series of photographs I’ve been taking over the last few years. Of course, you know that I’ve recently gotten back to my love of photography. So, today I’d like to publicly present my ongoing series: Hotel Bathroom Origami.
Why would any one want someone else to touch the toilet and tissue paper and the towels in our hotel bathroom? A rhetorical question as it seems to be more and more the norm as I travel around the world. Every time I arrive at my hotel destination, my first stop is usually the bathroom for a pit stop. But with the Swine Flu consuming us (or at least our germaphobe tendencies), who wants anyone handling anything we touch to our noses and unmentionables? To say nothing of wasting paper just for the sake of presentation. Really!
Werewolf has nothing on the scary paranoiac (yet oddly beautiful) Hotel Bathroom Origami.
