Tea (Peter Hatton, Val Murray and Lynn Pilling) is a collaborative, critical, spatial practice which aims to make visible the intriguing and dynamic complexity of interactions between the built environment and people's activities over time. Our creative engagement with places uses installation, performance, video and publication to construct new narratives and reflections; a subtle form of Public Art. For example, Boat Trip: Nothing But Flowers explored the evolving margins of the Manchester Ship Canal through on the ground activities and encounters, video, fiction and documentary to construct narratives of various locations along the banks presented through live boat trips and a publication. In Fabrika the changing use and value of industrial spaces in St Petersburg and Manchester were presented through a composite video journey. Spinning A Yarn for The Whitworth took a performative look at buildings associated with the cotton industry in Manchester.
