Transparent public toilet in Basel, Switzerland

This toilet, called “Don’t Miss a Sec,” first shown in December 2003 by conceptual artist Monica Bonvicini, was immediately called “Loo with a View” by the press.

The photos show this transparent glass toilet at the Messeplatz in Basel, Switzerland at a major exhibition centre, were the largest exhibitions about watches & jewelry called ‘Basel World’ and the ‘Art’ (one of the biggest art exhibitions worldwide) take place.

From the outside looking in, it appears to be nothing more than a monolith made of mirrors; from the inside looking out, it’s a fully transparent 360-degree window on the world.
Although the stainless steel potty within the glass cube is fully functional, it’s still more a work of art than what you’d call an ‘official’ public toilet.

Nobody can see you during daytime, but what at night when the mirror is one-way in the other direction? People could also coming up to the wall and cupping their hands between their eyes and the glass, and then see quite alot of the action going on inside the toilet…

The “Don’t Miss a Sec” toilet originally stood on a bustling construction site facing the Tate Britain Museum in London.

Monica Bonvicini was born 1965 in Venice, Italy. The artist lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Los Angeles, USA.

Upside Down House Installation

An installation of an upside down house in Trassenheide Germany was opened to the public two weeks ago and was designed by Polish partners Klaudiusz Golos and Sebastion Mikuciuk for the Edutainment exhibition company.



People who have visited the house reported feeling dizzy and disorientated. An interesting alternative view of every day items and the designers did a great job with the interior. Similar buildings have been designed upside down before but only from the exterior.

















Dizzy??

Where is that $1

Three friends went to a restaurant.

The bill was $75

Each one contributed $25

The waiter took the bill to the cashier. The cashier was happy & decided to give them a discount of $5 and asked the waiter to return them.

Now the waiter was confused. How to distribute $5 among 3 persons?

He kept $2 in his pocket and gave one dollar to each one of the 3 persons.

So initially each one had contributed $25. Now they have been given $1 back, their contribution reduces to $24.

They all contributed $24.

That is $24×3= $72 and the $2 is in the waiters pocket.

The total becomes $74. But they had paid $75.

Where did the $1 go??

Tricky!! 😉

He’s known as ‘The Ice Man.”

It’s an ability he discovered in himself as a young man 20 years ago.

“I had a stroll like this in the park with somebody and I saw the ice and I thought, what would happen if I go in there. I was really attracted to it. I went in, got rid of my clothes. Thirty seconds I was in,” Hof said. “Tremendous good feeling when I came out and since then, I repeated it every day.” It was the moment that Hof knew that his body was different somehow: He was able to withstand fatally freezing temperatures.
