several people would get to see and appreciate it, though most still wouldn't want to touch itCalluna,
Why do you think that?
I dropped many zines, postcards and even small toys (plastic dinosaurs with a tag saying "please give me a good home") in bathrooms, mostly around my campus library and I would go check on them about an hour later and every item was already gone! I always place them around lunchtime, because I know a lot of people take theyr bathroom breaks after lunch and the janitor wont be doing his rounds untill afte 6pm.
I favor stalls and changing booths more because I think people feel safer to take something with them when no one else is looking. I guess thats why its also a good idea to leave things in library shelves or between the pages of a book. There is this sense of intimacy between the piece and the finder.
Once I tried to leave some papiermache sculptures in a popular park, but the day passed and only one was taken! They had a tag on them indicating that the figure belonged to whoever found it, but people just looked at them and passed them by. I think since it was so visible they were too shy to touch them. Alas, the only one who went to a new home that day was picked up by a kid.
