Abstract

This case study focuses on a functioning campus bathroom that has been transformed into a sensually rich women's community space and explores how women have created meaning in a private context where their own norms prevail. The women have built an embodied environment, where ordinary objects are used to foster connectedness, expressiveness, and creativity. They value playfulness, good humor, and an aesthetically elaborated environment that caters to all body senses while expressing a nonconsumerist ethos.
