Room For Tea: an immersive installation by Iris Xing

MFA Photo/Video alumni Iris Xing recently created an immsersive pop-up experience based around tea culuture in New York City. As the Room for Tea event website states:

Screen Shot 2018-10-02 at 11.56.29 AM.png

"In the city of New York, we are fascinated by the integration of diversity. Tea is such a magical drink that embraces all different flavors and allows them to shine their unique characters with balance. Herb meets milk; sweet meets bitter, and of course Boba meets Jelly! Just a few examples of how fusion the tea world can be. In a way, it is a collision of taste, a synthesis of cultures, and a symbol of unity.

As lovers of tea and fans of diversity, we’re here to celebrate tea’s glory. With our love, passion and creativity, we created this fun interactive space for everyone in New York City."

The pop-up featured several rooms highlighting various aspects of tea-culture, including: the Labyrinth of Tea origin, Milk Tea Metropolis, Matcha under Cherry Blossom, Summer BOBA Court and Mint Tea Secret Box.
