Wabi cup

cup 2018

The shape of Wabi made from polystyrene

Transparent polystyrene cups are often used for disposables.

If you heat and deform a polystyrene cup, the long shape shrinks down by one-third.

As I try many different ways of heating and deforming, it turned out to be a cup with an exceptional Wabi atmosphere.

Wabi is a unique aesthetic generated from an incomplete thing that the Japanese have loved.

I happened to find such an aesthetic in this work and I am happy to appreciate the form.

ポリスチレン の 侘びた形


熱を加えて変形させてみると、スッと伸びていたカップが 1/3ほどに縮む。
