A 2 year permanent trace project by "Tea by the Sea" aiming to build an iconic lighthouse / teahouse for enjoying sunsets, dubby ambient techno and tea
Teahouse by day, lighthouse by night, the lighthouse by the sea aims to be a beautiful permanent trace from Borderland to Hedenland, and also stands as a symbol for the light that helps us to navigate difficult waters.
The place will have a respectful atmosphere where you can write down thoughts, form a memory and just enjoy an overview. It will also be made available to book for ceremonies such as engagements, japanese tea-ceremonies, intention-setting circles and rope-bondage.
For 2019 we aim to make a solid wooden platform which can serve as tea-house during day. We will leave this platform behind as a part of the permanent land art grant. The structure will be secured to the ground and be safe for many people at the same time. On top of the platform we will hang a big disco-ball which we illuminate from below.
As we come back in 2020 we will extend the structure upwards with a tall tower and a roof
NOTE: We need help building this dream. If you're interested in participating, reach out via our facebook group. We might have space in our camp too...
Tea by the Sea is an international group of burners who was arranging the Entropy sound stage in 2016, and Tea by the Sea in 2017 and 2018. We're from Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Belgium, UK and the US
We'll have a moop-master like last year, and do a moop-sweep before leaving the ground.
