Rhizome.org's ArtBase on Tea Blog, an ongoing project by British artist Ellie Harrison: "Every time Ellie has a cup of tea (or a different type of hot drink) she notes down the thought which is most on her mind during the first few sips. These thoughts are then uploaded to the Tea Blog at regular intervals. Tea Blog aims to expand indefinitely over the next few years, developing over-time into a vast database of thoughts – a diary of day-to-day life via the ritual of tea-drinking."
It sounds banal, to be sure, but I was surprised to find myself getting really interested after clicking through a few cups worth of entries—Harrison gives you just a snippet of her life, but it's just enough that your imagination starts piecing together what the whole might be like. (Also: the British really do drink a lot of tea, don't they?)
