Tea Talks

Blackburn with Darwen, Lancashire, U.K. I held tea talks with people of diverse backgrounds at the 7 exhibition sites of the work from 21 different countries from Asia. The art was the live element plus video & photography & paintings that recorded the interactions. During the 3 month residency local school children were also involved and as a finale scattered the dried tea leaves from all the tea talks as healthy compost into the earth of an especially planted tree to commemorate the residency.
