3D-printed Teeth-Cup

Beautiful and disturbing cup by Lily X. Su:

“Why is it that we find the cup so unappetizing? Could it have originated from survival tactics where we relate our proximity to another’s teeth as a threat of life, a reminder of predator and prey, poison and contamination?
Is this object then successful in its design to prevent gluttonous behavior should food and drink only be offered in the cup?”
