Breakfast Tea

Description

Breakfast Tea is a series of tea bags embroidered with phrases and words from sacred Sanskrit texts and matras. It is a work that comments on the spiritual supermarket in society today. The act of embroidering sacred sanskrit words onto these tea bags is an act of translating a household commodity into a sacred object. The tea bags in these works act as a metaphor for spirtual practices and products in society today that are accessible and disposable just as tea bags. Thus, making spirituality as easy as making the morning ritual breakfast tea.
