Bathing and showering can be seen by many as an everyday or weekly ritual. With the 'Elevated Bathtub' I try to isolate this function and to regard it as a luxury need. Humanity is constantly innovating to make life easier. Sometimes these inventions transcend the essential and the functional. The admiration, ode and at the same time mockery of this ever-steadfast trend leads me to a dream image in which a blissfully restful need such as bathing can take place in a beautiful park like the Middelheim, with a view of the surroundings.
