Ellie Harrison, Tea Blog

It was suggested that I research the artist Ellie Harrison, as her live archiving projects are relevant to the project I am about to undertake.

I came across “Tea Blog”, a 3 year project in which Harrison recorded and archived the thought that was most on her mind every time she sat to drink a cup of tea.

There are 1,650 thoughts recorded on the blog.

I particularly love that you don’t have to read all the entries to gain an understanding of the project and imagine yourself having to do this whenever you drank tea. ┬áIt’s very inspiring, and made me wonder whether I should try a website instead, but due to a very limited understanding of website design I should probably stick to what I know best: books.

Anyway, click here for Tea Blog, and enjoy!
