After listening to the comments from everyone during mid-terms, I felt like there was a lot I could do to reiterate my original meaning. Here were some suggestions that were given.
- Having cameras pointed at the individual, have spotlights on them. This is to emphasize on discomfort, where the “attention” is on them. Somewhat comical in nature, and perhaps grandiose to a funny extent.
- Have the participant’s every move narrated by a voice as they go about their business in the washroom.
- Have a webcam feed show up both inside and outside the toilet of a particular angle (suggested: feet near the toilet bowl).
Upon consideration, I wondered what other ways I could implement the idea of having the attention on the participant while in the toilet. A friend of mine suggested having the sound of applause when a certain action is done (e.g. the flushing of the toilet) and I thought that was pretty interesting, to have sound used to reflect interactions.
I then thought of: what if someone sat on the toilet, and then fast orchestral music started playing? Something like Flight of the Bumble Bee?
