the thinker by its very nature forces the user to contemplate the properties of water. it functions in such a way that when not in use the top portion is empty. to sit one must turn the thinker like an hour glass. this permits an adequate surface for sitting but also intiates the countdown towards the emptying of the full chamber. the user finds himself having to turn the seat once again should he desires to remain seated. the result is a constant interaction between the user and the chair all rooted in the properties of water, ideally leading him to contemplate about water, its use and its essentialness.
