Shit Happens!

08.11.2011

COLORS 82 is out now and you can see in my website the whole feature of one of the two assignments I did for this issue! Shit, is about 2.6 billion people in the world who need toilets. It explains why they can’t find one, and why it’s so important that they do. It tells you the difference between a helicopter toilet, a pit latrine and shitting in the street. It advices you how to make your own, inspired by makeshift toilets built after an earthquake in New Zealand. It also explains how the Japanese have become the most advanced toilet culture in the world, explores the winding guts of Barcelona’s sewer system, features China’s best toilet attendant, and visits a jail in Rwanda where people imprisoned for acts of genocide turn their waste into cooking gas. We are already working, researching and feeling the next issue!!
