Teacup Tools
----------------------------------------------------------
The Teacup Tools are an array of cybernetic teacups, adapting themselves to the realm of climate related sciences.They appear as a multifunctional tool for the investigation of tiny micro clouds above tea,
for communication and for tea drinking.
On a mobile phone one can log into the local Teacup Tool Wifi and have a look at realtime curves, written by dancing teacups, listen to Data Tango and get more info on the Global Teacup Network.
The sculptures have a nomadic quality. Like parasites they can be found next to aerosol* measurement stations, in parks, on streets, on roofs or in the neighbourhood of research laboratories.

Global Teacup Network
----------------------------------------------------------
The Global Teacup Network (GTN) calls attention to the investigation of the invisible and borderless air and its aerosols* - tiny particles of organic and anorganic matter, with a major impact on cloud formation, crucial to weather and climate.
---------------------------------
*Aerosol =„solution in air“ (ancient Greek „a-er“ = „air“; latin „solutus“ = „dissolved“).
---------------------------------


Tealemetree

----------------------------------------------------------
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.
