Treading the Steep Route is an undercover installation. Use of the functional hot water urn triggers at random from a selection of crowd-sourced audio recordings of transactions from the global tea trade: the Mombassa Tea Auction, Assam tea pickers being paid, tea being paid for in an Italian Café. It builds on research from Flows 1.0.
Installation at Palazzo Ducale, Genoa, 2015.
