HOT CONTENTS(TM)


This project departs from isolations and collective feelings, designed by Mariana Tilly and Sofia Mascate.


CAUTION NOW


I stare down at my coffee cup. I watch its lid carefully. “Caution: Hot Contents”. I giggle, because these days all art

is content and some are hot and others not. GET BURNT, I think to myself. Patience is key. The thing about these

cups is that if the lid isn’t well shut and you grab it in a certain way, the very Hot Contents(TM) will spill all over and

burn you. If something like this happens, whoever provided the coffee could be held accountable. The Hot

Contents sign prevents that from happening, since you had ALL the information all along, so it is ultimately your

fault if you get burnt. Responsibility lies within you, but it’s so hard to handle because you’re mentally exhausted

and highly caffeinated. Strange feelings, fidgeting fingertips, blinking hard.


THIS IS THE LONGEST 2020 THAT EVER WAS, NOW FOR 2.0 REMIX


Have you been bottling up all the feelings or did you break some dishes? Shattered some glass? We feel as if we

were Portuguese Man’o’Wars dragging on the wet sand, shining in the sun, waiting to be licked —


Scalding hot, heart pumping, ready for electric shocks — It may be we’re hysterical, but we have seen so much.

Hysterical NO, Caffeinated YES


This show is brought to you by Hot Coffee(TM) because it’s so good and it has truly been here for us.
