A Coffee With R2D2

I was looking for a photo to write a daily prompt post, but then I found this great work by Maria Aristidou picturing R2D2 from a coffee stain!

Just kicking Rorschach Master Jedi style…

There is an ancestral genetic self-preserving code making us clean stains and look for purity in cleansiness, but we shouldn’t give this code full control of our lives.

Perfection can be an hypothetic and theorical drive to improve ourselves, but imperfection sometimes can be the actual path to get there. Maybe contamination, transformation and interpenetration are the new perfection.

As a Star Wars fan and a coffee lover (as much as a terrible painter) I thank Maria creating my childhood most loved droid from the most imperfect way to use the Quickening power of C8H10N4O2.

Check out her work on Facebook and may the force be with you! 😉
