Can tea soften the taste of the acidification?, object-performance, 2019

Within our society it has become difficult to start speaking to a stranger without any reason. Whether it being a mutual friend, experience or interest, we always need a spark which motivates us to start talking with someone we don't know. We always need something which connects us, which is why I created a backpack in which you will find everything to make tea for two people. It consists of a teapot, two cups, a gas stove and water. On top is a compartment in which you can grow herbs such as mint, sage or lavender. With this backpack tea can be an excuse to start a conversation between strangers. This way tea can be used to soften the taste of the acidification in our society.
