While participating in the artist-in-residence program at the Italian creative incubator Fabrica, I created this object installation using two espresso cups and a red ribbon. The juxtaposition of these two everyday elements explores the concept of affezione, or, the attachment we feel to the things around us, the people we love, and the places to which we belong.
