Social Cups facilitated new connections with one of the most common domestic objects--cups! Handles are an ordinary means of bodily interface, so by creating two small handles instead of a single, I preserved their original functionality while providing a new site for playful connections to occur.  To prompt these interactions, I gave away cups with a tag attached, making a request. The request read:  Play with me.  Use Materials.  Relate me to your body.  Take a picture.  Connect me.  

Above are a few of the responses I received:  Thank you to everyone who participated in Social Cups!
