New Delhi to Cleveland - Tea Bags Measure Time

My journey to Cleveland as an artist in residence created an opportunity for me to collect hundreds of tea bags from new friends, artists, host organizations, local businesses, and the various others who crossed my path during my three month stay there. In particular my host, an artist, would slip her used tea bag and story, under my door every day. These works were born out of my time during the residency.
