Cup 359 of 365. 26 May, 2017.


Prompt: make something natural look digital.

The truth of the matter, is that this piece did not work out as planned. The idea was to use tea-leaves and glue to create a pixellated-style image, rendered in tea leaves.

However, I perhaps should have made it on a larger scale to have a better chance at squaring off the lines. Nonetheless, I plugged on and what I liked most was the slow-mo reveal video which I have inserted below. I like the whooshy-noise that the tea leaves make. How cool would it be to make a loose-leaf pot of tea, if you were rewarded with that kind of sound each time you dropped a teaspoon of the leaves into the pot.
