COMFORT: art objects that represent and are integral in the ritual of consumption such as tea, coffee, and other beverages that ease our hearts, start our days, and provide a common thread to our communities. Just as we institute social rituals and make personal connections around sharing these drinks, we create art that celebrates and elevates them.
Concept: an interactive multimedia show of art related to coffee and tea, and an exploration of the rituals and personal connections surrounding those drinks.
