George's Bath
Project info

'George's Bath' is an exploration of the world of George Fowler, 72, who is affected by hoarding. Focusing on a single location inside George’s four-bedroom house, namely his bathtub, this project detaches his condition from the clutter through which it is usually conveyed.
Having lived in George’s house for two months, my attention was drawn by the constant changes taking place in his bathtub, often on an hourly basis, while the rest of his house remained under the myriad accumulated clutter.
As one of the only accessible spaces, George’s bathtub has become the place where he washes the dishes, does his laundry, stores items or repairs bikes, where he has his coffee, reads books or, last but not least, takes a bath.
