Documentation from the Remote Tea Party.
California Institute of the Arts and the TAFE Gallery, Newcastle Australia, 2006
Concept, Software (Isadora)
Visitors to the Remote Tea Party were invited to have a conversation and ‘virtual tea’ with a person on the other side of the world.
Identical installations were running in Australia and California, which allowed participants to have a telematic discussion with other gallery. Objects such as a teacup were projected onto the table in between them, and they could be passed back and forth as requested through the use of motion tracking.
