If are constantly irritated by people leaving their teabags in the sink, perhaps you ought to start collecting them to make a spot of caffeinated art, just like Malaysian artist and architect, Red Hong Yi did! Known for creating art out of less-than-obvious objects, be it coffee-cup stains, flower petals or even bamboo sticks, incorporated used teabags for this piece.
Her latest project, titled Teh Tarik Man, took 20,000 teabags and two months of hard work to complete. The work was commissioned by her home country Malaysia to display at the World Economic Forum. Hong Yi was inspired by teh tarik (meaning pulled tea in Malay), a national drink that’s served in local cafes.
