Craquelures.

Massy, France, 2015.

Do you know what this is?
Vous savez ce que c’est ?

It is a mug with leftover instant coffee that has dried and cracked at the bottom.
Yes, it’s just that.
Fun fact: The Physics behind these cracks in dried coffee is the same Physics behind the cracks in paintings (like, for example, the Mona Lisa).

C’est une tasse avec un fond de café instantané qui a séché et craquelé.
Oui, c’est juste ça.
Le saviez-vous ? La physique derrière les craquelures de ce café qui a séché est la même physique derrière les craquelures sur un tableau (comme, par exemple, la Joconde).
