Coffee Stain Portrait
Ok, so I just finished watching this really sappy sweet movie called, The Secret. And because cutie pie Jay Chou from the movie,The Green Hornet was in it I had to google it. That’s where I found the movie’s soundtrack and then the Jay Chou song from it and then (I know…it’s a lot of then’s) I saw a link for this artist’s coffee project.
Hong Yi (aka Red) was inspired by a lyrics to the Jay Chou song “The cold coffee leaves the saucer, and I hold back feelings for you.” The it goes on about fragmented pieces and autumn leaves… So she created this labor intensive portrait of Jay formed by individual coffee rings. Deep, right?
If you’re like me and you need to see it for yourself, Hong Yi posted the Youtube video of herself in action.
