TWAV is about creating a place in public spaces that have not yet been created. And to waste time, the time that we as individuals squandering when we do not produce anything and instead form part of an immaterial, non functional, logical and mental fluency that may remind you of it falling over. TEA WITH A VIEW II is made of solid oak, a podium covered with mirrors and integrated PV systems. The artwork is both about the body and the aesthetic space, while it is politicized and suggested that it is the individual who personally create meaning in the public domain and affects the aesthetics and environment of the actions that are being subsided.
Visitors can both make a cup of tea and photographers themselves framed the landscape.
