Jeong Mi Lee is a modern artist who likes to explore certain aspects of human behaviour that are not normally discussed. In her latest series called 'Power of the Poop,' she examines what it's like to go to the bathroom in an unconventional setting, namely with a camera pointing at her that will then be going online.

While the entire thing is slightly discomforting to watch (it's not often you observe a full video of someone on The John), it goes to show how taboo certain subjects are. Talking about the fact that women do indeed go to the washroom is something that is not considered acceptable, but Jeong Mi Lee challenges this notion with her slightly comical, complete bathroom experience installation, sound effects and all.
