Art Tea in the Vanish Van (2005)


Annabel Other


Art Tea was an afternoon event using Spike Island's van and travelling camera obscura. It was parked in strategic places at bus stops and Annabel invited people to have a cup of tea and view the route from the van - a warm and dry waiting area of the van is where they see the image projected through the lens of the camera obscura. The cup that they are drinking from is a limited edition artwork and has on it a photographic image of the view that can be seen through the camera obscura's lens. Those who participate can take the cup home with them. A new cup is produced for each site making a 'collection' possible.
