The Digital Librarian Goes to the Bathroom...Again

Turkish artist Şakir Gökçebag makes art from toilet paper. As this is the second time I've written about art from toilet paper, I'm starting to wonder: what the hell's going on here? Do I have a odd obsession with what goes on behind closed bathroom doors? Or am I giggling at at a highfalutin fart joke?



But no. It's just the small but significant joy of seeing an everyday object transformed. Not all moments need to be so grand, my dears. A smile. An understanding. These things can be enough.


There's an awkwardness necessity of both poop and beauty. What's not to get?
