Solo Together

Crown highlights the social and cultural complexities behind this superficially simple icon. They are physical remains of a transient event and beg questions to an absent crowd: “Who was here and where are they now?”, “What was the occasion?”, “What did I miss out on?” and “Who’s job is it to clear this up?”. The names of each cup are inspired by the imagined personalities of their owners, or hint towards private complexities behind public personas: Mathlete, Effortlessly Perfect, Failing Out, or Keeping Up Appearances. Each piece has been cast in plaster from a hand-crushed cup, which has then been spray and hand-painted. The combination of re-production and craft techniques reflect the central themes in this work: the individual versus the anonymous; the way humans make personal marks upon their mass-produced belongings.
