Shower Thots (a social slang for that 'ho' over there) is the second development exploring the symbolism of the solo character in the bathroom. Referenced across cinema, music and theatre, the solo character in a body of water is a constantly melancholic persona submerged either in sensual bliss or death. Shower Thots expands the trope of shower thoughts and proposes audacious alternatives to the gaze and a focus to the micro. Enter the bathroom of a queer person in lockdown; Shower Thots is a time capsule to a private bathroom in the peak of lockdown.
