Coffee Seeks its Own Level was inspired by the principle “water seeks its own level”.
Allan Wexler had been working on a series of projects using basic scientific principles learned in high school as a means to explore architectural issues.
Coffee Seeks its Own Level choreographs group dynamics. If one person alone lifts his cup, coffee overflows the other three cups. All four people need to coordinate their actions and lift simultaneously.
