A Tea Ceremony deep in the shade of SMEAR Forest

Tealemetree Station, a permanent sculpture by Agnes Meyer-Brandis was inaugurated during a small and intimate tea-drinking ceremony in the SMEAR Research Forest in the middle of Finland.

The Station is meant for the the encounters occurring within the forest, to get in touch with other researches and the trees, visiting Hyytiälä Forest Station. Agnes spent time in Hyytiälä as an artist-in-residency in Climate Whirl program by University of Helsinki and Capsula, and funded by Kone Foundation.

Tea = a traditional beverage made from steeping the processed leaves, buds in water.
Telemetry = The word is derived from Greek roots: tele = remote, and metron = measure.
Tree = There is no universally recognised precise definition of what a tree is, neither botanically nor in common language.
