Demitri Made Tea: or how I learned to forget and love the biscuit crumbs
“Demitri Made Tea: or how I learned to forget and love the biscuit crumbs”, is an interactive installation piece creating a domestic living space based on imagined memories and out of body experiences. The installation invites the viewer to enter and sit down, engaging with the objects in a stripped down living space. There are various levels with which to engage the project. Through multiple entrances, short and tall, a participant can take a seat on the couch and open draws which contain objects to examine, and even take home. Others may feel safer on the outside, becoming a voyeur of both my memory and participants engaging with the project. The room is enveloped by a dissolving couch, which sends foam and pillows swirling around the room creating a barrier while drawing attention to the bulging canvas. The canvas is a collection of dreamy memories, a recollection from the past, a peeping toms window into the past. Upon closer inspection the room is covered in sacred geometrical patterns that relate to the golden ration and the interconnectedness of all things. Every object has been slightly altered, touched with loving memory and recollection, a curated trip of deja-vu from my mind to yours.
