The fabric depicts my daily routine of drinking tea. I drink tea when I am anxious, tired, or unhappy. I drink tea when I can't sleep; my mind feels clouded, my eyes and body feel heavy and my thoughts become jumbled causing my body to disfunction. The installation captures my dissociate state. I wish to sleep but all I see is an illusion of my bed, denying me comfort and leaving me with the strong desire to rest.

Silkscreen printed with dye paste and discharge on dyed silk fabric.
