Description

In Well, a paper coffee cup's bottom is removed, while a pedestal is filled with water and a small void created at the top. The cup is carefully placed directly over the void. The public is encouraged to engage with the piece by throwing a coin into the cup, making a silent wish, and listening to the water swallow the coin.
