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!
