Bog standard from the series, ‘Before I leave the house’ features the routinely used toilet dispenser, revived in a new context. Bog standard allows space for interaction outside of the common, to provide a new perspective on the ordinary. Bog standard holds 18 meters of Facebook feed, responding to a proposed question, to provide insight into the daily routine. The toilet roll shows printed text on silk-like material, with a machine stitched finish. Bog standard flaunts the consumptive act of using toilet paper and shows the relationship between art and life's realities.
