This research investigates the spreading of the beverage of coffee throughout the world, the state of drinking coffee and all the necessary objects that accompany drinking. The product, the space and the objects of coffee drinking compose the whole that a person project in the social sphere. So, we started thinking on the constant dialog between:
Product – consumer
Coffee – coffee drinker
Object – performance
From the body posture of the coffee drinker, his ritual and the performance, result in two categories of coffee drinking. These are “the static” and “the moving coffee”. Those two are the main categories in which the research is carried out.
The space is separated in three levels. The first level is the space in which the person is included in order to drink coffee. In the second level, the scale changes, so the space becomes the area between the coffee drinker and the objects that he uses. In the third level, the space is exclusively about the object – cup. It’s about how coffee as a product touches the inside walls of the container that carries it.
The object is an irreplaceable part of the pleasure and enjoyment to such an extent that the user – consumer reflects his self in it. The container – cup is the new case study, the new product of research and collection. The residue at the bottom of the cup represents the end of the performance and the relationship between the object and the person. The capture of the residue is achieved through the photoshoot of the objects, after the end of coffee drinking. After the photoshoot the ensemble of photos that is created results in the need for classification. The total of the objects becomes a museum exhibit that keeps the moment before the end of the drinking process in eternity.
