The T House Talk & T Bar

The public is invited to a talk with BioCultura artists, to ‘take tea' with special guest Zen Buddhist Monk Gicko David Rubin, to taste tea blends from various plants, and to explore the multi-media ‘T' House.

Inspired by a traditional teahouse, The ‘T' House provides a physical, virtual and radio ‘platform' for the performance, discussion and experience of the complex symbiotic relationships of humans and plants in and around Albuquerque, New Mexico and beyond. BioCultura artist Andrea Polli and architectural designer John Donalds imagine a future in which architectural systems are microbial and function in ways similar to mechanisms within a living tea plant. Codifed during the Edo period when Japan closed itself off from the outside world, a traditional Japanese teahouse was an example of extreme sustainability, a system in which all materials were re-used and waste was very limited.
