The intimacy of thought in front of the bathroom mirror.
The diversity that exists between what we expose of ourselves and the place where we allow to see, feel and hear ourselves.
A machine for heating depilatory wax, a swivel chair; a person waiting for herself. The rite of appearance.
The pleasure in doing it, the annoyance of repeating it, the decadence which we hide from.
