Great Lakes Herbal Tea Project
Gallery 2, Chicago, Illinois. Plants, tea kettle, modified tube (for the sound), hot plates, wood shelves, glass cups. An installation/performance. 5 herbs/roots native to the Great Lakes region, each emitting a specific pitch while boiling, were served to visitors. Scents and sounds were matched in terms of “weight”, “pitch”, and a number of other qualities. The 5 pitches formed a pentatonic chord, in tribute to Chicago, one of the home of Blues.
