It started out with a few stacked coffee cups next to his computer…but the stack grew. First into a line along the window frame, then into a very small triangle. With creativity, drive, passion, persistence, and a steady hand, Siddharth Gupta, OpenStudy’s Lead UX Designer, has created a piece of art right in our office. More importantly, he’s created this piece for all of Atlanta to see. If you are on Spring street in the near future, you’ll easily be able to recognize the location of our office within the ATDC just by glancing at the building. Some have already seen the Coffee Cup Christmas Tree or heard of it through friends.
The future of the Coffee Cup Christmas Tree is ominous at best. Each daily addition lessens the stability, and it won’t be long until it can’t stand anymore. Mr. Gupta has recently been quoted as saying, “When it falls, it falls, and then I will begin a new one. All of the cups in this one will go and the process will start over.” Ah, the circle of life.
With our office edifice in limbo everyday, we decided to share with our readers who may not have the luxury of stopping by or passing through Spring Street, OpenStudy’s Coffee Cup Christmas Tree. Enjoy!
