Coffee Powder Series

Coffee powder is my everyday interaction from perking up my mornings to making a cup for a coffee lover. From the extraction of espresso to the exploration of latte art. 

Thrown away coffee powder - the everyday disposal from the calibration of the coffee grinder - became my way of creating a latte art.

In every art making process, its complexity in finishing is restricted by my expectation in creating a perfect artwork.

By deconstructing the recipe from a perfect cup, the primary material of coffee powder became my medium of art-making. In reconstructing the process of coffee making, I can still create my cup of coffee without throwing any coffee powder away.

Having a strong attachment to my paintings and drawings, I struggled to salvage and keep their existence. In choosing coffee powder to create and to erase, I leave a temporary existence of myself that is only keepsake in photograph.
