In thinking about my brief for my raw and ready made project, I thought a lot about what “objects” we truly require and I think it can be greatly down to opinion. I think an object thats important is a cup. Cups contain liquid allow us to hydrate and nourish ourselves efficiently and quickly, we can transport water and take it with us. Utilising cups allow us to travel, explore and discover the world. The culture of drinking transcends culture and race, it also is a social catalyst and advocator of friendship and trust.
The cup has been a universal piece of technology that from antiquity has evolved and stayed with us through the ages. And even before that we would cup our hands just as birds would feed from their beaks.
Cups have become ceremonial and are used religiously, they can have stories and narrative embellished on them, speaking of ones culture or even personal victories.
