Bruce Nauman, 'Caffeine Dreams'. (1987)

Excerpt from press release:
"Bruce Nauman’s Caffeine Dreams (1987) suggests the ordinary through the recurring motif of generic coffee mugs, while providing feelings of uncertainty through the implied chaos caused by the anonymous characters’ inability to achieve the simple task of holding a cup of coffee. Nauman’s title interjects a feeling of surrealism, turning what should be a normal occurrence into a dreamlike sequence where reality and imagination become indifferentiable."
