Hero Tea: Brew Up the Power!
Bone china wares, transfer decals, 2008
Inspired by English tea culture, I have made ‘Hero Tea’ cups. The idea is that you can absorb heroes’ power as you drink tea. Heroes have been created through film, TV and comic books for decades.
We are attracted to them because they fulfill our unachievable desire. When we drink tea we expect some good things from tea leaf such as better health. In a humorous way, when you brew hero tea with printed special-hero–characters, you may get the incredible power you have always wanted to have.
The images I have chosen and manipulated from films-Harry Potter, Spiderman and TV series- Heroes, Merlin, and Smallville.
