Science of the Secondary: Cup

Atelier Hoko (Author)

Science of the Secondary is an inquisitive approach towards uncovering implicit conditions that exist in our experience of the everyday.

"...but what does it mean to drink? Do we drink with our skin when the hands are hugging the cup? Are we drinking with our body posture while sipping earl grey in a tearoom? Are the ears drinking as we take each sip of coffee? Can we consider the act of licking one’s lips drinking? Does the nose know that it is drinking as it hovers above the caramelized milk froth sitting atop a very large cup of coffee...?"

'Science of the Secondary: Cup’ is the second edition in the series of the ongoing independent research programme conceived and developed by Atelier HOKO.

Atelier Hoko is an independent research lab that focuses on the study of the growing disengagement between people, things and space. The atelier hopes to cultivate in people an openness and ability to un-know, bringing about a heightened curiosity towards all phenomena by taking a fresh look at reality.
