The Herbal Tea

The Herbal Tea
project for Interface Inagh, curated by Alannah Robins
Tehran, Iran, November 2017
Scientific advisor: Marie Louise Heffernan
Video, 1:44 minute

This project is the result of a collaboration with the Interface institute, located in the west of Ireland. There are various beautiful landscapes in that region. Their main approach has concerned connecting science and art. Apart from this, as there is also numerous history in scientific-natural research in the area, I decided to design/make a herbal tea. For this purpose I had consultations with a scientific researcher who owns her brand for herbal medicine. The visual aspect of the location which I felt from the photographs pushed me to think to a soothing tea.This tea also invites somebody to peace. The irish flag has represented in the video’s color selection.

The composition of the tea is as follows:

(Melissa officinalis + Valeriana officinalis + Hypericum perforatum

+ Lavandula angustifolia + Coriander seeds)
