If you've ever been in a New York public restroom, likely at a diner or crowded Starbucks, then you know how low sanitation standards in the city really are. Bums, crying babies and sketchy drifters all do their dirty work in that little bathroom at the back of the joint, and no one cares if the TP is running low.
Danish collective Superflex is apparently no stranger to controversial if not odd art experiments, and this time around, they installed a close replica of the JPMorgan Chase headquarters executive restroom in the Greek-owned Olympic Diner on Delancey Street. The piece is called "Power Toilet," made possible by an anonymous source who had access to JPMorgan Chase's private restroom. Each detail, including the generic artwork on the wall, has been recreated. [Art Info]
