The journey that I have pursued throughout the process of my work has been a challenging yet rewarding one. The subject matter is based around the concept of individuality and coming together as one in unity. It is evident that each tea bag has a distinctive uniqueness which highlights characteristics of individuality. With this being said, I have implemented the use of tea bags as a symbol of humanity, as each of us have the same ‘guts’ yet have completely different characteristics.

My advice to future students...

When you are feeling down and want to ’throw in the towel’ - Don’t. Take a break and take some time to ‘smell the flowers’ and then give it another shot.
