NEED: A Month's Addiction

A person consumes an average of three, eight fluid ounce cups of coffee a day. This work visually represents the number of cups of coffee any individual may consume within a month’s time frame. In a standard month, that total is 90 cups of coffee.
The cups are installed on the floor and the text, which must be read from overhead (accessed by stairs) reveals the word NEED. This demonstrates the length in which we take in order to get our ‘fix’. This is a representation of going out of our way, being late to work, or not feeling ready to start our day without that first cup of coffee.
