Can everyday actions by adding technology contribute positively to our psychological well-being by changing the rituals surrounding them?
“With Magic Tea you experience another perspective on yourself and the world.”— Danielle Roberts, Awareness Lab
You can put on a kettle for a quick cuppa between activities, but there’s another possibility. This interactive tea installation calls for attention and calmness, and turns a simple chore into a meditative moment. The water gurgles, the balls of oolong tea slowly unfold, and the play of light and water acquires a magical cadence. The design slows down the process, lending it a natural rhythm. Danielle Roberts uses biometric data to bridge the gap between the everyday and the transcendental. ‘Magic Tea’ toys with our awareness: where do you end and where does the cuppa begin? Relax, experience another way of being and feel better.
