Around you

 

2004



In cafés people drink coffee, read, meet with their friends or maybe just enjoy the feeling of being surrounded by other human beings.

The intention of around YOU is to focus on the everyday phenomena of observing and comparing other peoples’ taste and personalities with ones own.

The visitors of Café Kiasma were able to choose from a wide selection of cups and mugs when they took a coffee. Each choice added to the complex exchange of signals between all café visitors.

The project was realised at Café Kiasma, Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, FI.
