These works are from the ‘dialogues’ exhibition examining the use of recycled tea bags.
As mentioned, these works explore the beauty of repetition. The repetition of the tea making, the repetition of the pulling apart of the tea bag. The repetition of the labels.
The labels started to build up… what could be made from them…. Dragons, hats…
Slinky is the repeat of the tea dragons, but with the tea bag repetition.
