The fruit from my fourth coffee-lid session. Eschewing the artificial coloration, the exaggeration of the staining residue, the strangeification perhaps of it all. Instead it’s brought into a weightless purity, an austere and quiet place.

There are still faint hints of the dark liquid of awakening, but like shadows and edges alike, the contrast is so minimal that they’re barely there. Minute traces of use that prove this wasn’t taken from the cleanroom assembly line straight into the studio. It guarded against splashes and spills up four flights of stairs, bike in one hand, coffee and donut in the other, and hulking backpack to boot (my morning routine).

Actually shot on a vivid red, the shouting of color was too much for me so it got this treatment. And that’s the story.

Thursday Tomorrow.
