"Coffee Drinker"

"Coffee Drinker" or the "coffee bong" as it has been nick named is a satire on coffee as a much desired substance for its addictive medicinal values and the friendly culture of coffee drinkers. The piece is a reflection of a coffee drinker, as one would look in a satirical mirror. The white element represents the face. The top rounded white element the forehead. The play of the negative spaces surrounded by the outline of the white element suggests lower components of the face, bridge of the nose and a chin. The eyes are represented by the round aluminum cover at the right top, and the corresponding round cover in the opposite corner. It's an airplane pulley. The diagonal nature of the "eyes" suggests a bit of a buzz. The expression is friendly, engaging, social, and with a slight smile accented by the round corners of the chin at the bottom. The mouth is represented by the narrow white stripe just below the nose. The nose is represented by the beaker with a dark liquid, presumably coffee. The fun in the piece is the connection of the beaker and the valve assembly by a transparent tube with particles; the active ingredient particles in a double espresso coffee!
