About the exhibit:
"Still Life with Tea" is a new media piece composed of computer-collaged video projected into a three-
dimensional installation of related objects. A fresh take on the concept of "still life," it places the
subject of "tea" within the context of "Manhattan". This is a still life which is not still (the sculptural
structure remains in place but the imagery is constantly changing), and in which the ostensible subject
(tea) is as much "background" as "foreground."
