Agnes Meyer-Brandis’ Tea with a Tree is a video conference with up to 16 trees participating in real time, live streamed from locations around the world. Part of Meyer-Brandis’ The Office for Tree Migration (OTM), the project aims to foster exchange and communication between vegetal and human participants in the physical as well as in the digital world. This is a live video where audiences are invited to sit at tables outside on The Commons to watch and experience the work.

Programmed by Sensorium: Centre for Digital Arts and Technology at the School of the Arts, Media, Performance & Design (AMPD) as part of The Year of the Arts at AMPD.
