Levander still, teabags to the earth, 2019

Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours

Simone is an interdisciplinary, experimental artist who explores the conservation concerns of our everyday actions through performance and video. The work involves the harvesting of local plants – that have been historically used to make tea – to change tea-drinking habits away from the use of convenient teabags. The focus is on the process of making tea from the plant being harvested and the disposal of leaves in the compost and the earth itself.
