Surviving with ‘Englishness’

Global communication subjects us to apocalyptic visions of society on a daily basis, through the media as well as religious writings. While we are fascinated with the possibility our civilization's breakdown, we often focus our attention on the dramatic and extreme consequences without thinking about the smaller and possibly mundane aspects that make us human and retain our dignity.

This project explores how an Englishman/woman can retain a small part of their culture during extreme circumstances, imagining novel ways in which a simple cup of tea can be brewed.
