eco art with used teabags

Since 2005 I use old used teabags from all over the world as my basic art-material.
In contemporary art and an visuell fine artist I have to be responsible for resources and health of the earth as the source of all nature and beings.
I am aware and responsible for my ecological footprint, and that's why I am working with old used material since my beginning art-life in my childhood, always creating new treasures out of old trash stuff. This Portfolio is showing the basic material from using old tried teabags

Coloured teabagsheets “Coloured teabagsheets”

That's how the teabagpapers look after opening the teabags and put out the teaplants

working with teabags “working with teabags”

Here I am working with the teabagpaper, creating a huge installation with 12500 single teabagpapersheets

Transformations “Transformations”

10 years ago I began the artproject, "Come to the dinner - an invitation to all religions and nations" and the "world-citizen blanket" with collected used tea bags as basic material .... What is the philosophical background of this artproject? How did it start? Who supplies the tea bags? Where is the artproject today ... "The beginning ... the way ... the development .. the current state ... Is art from tea bags art at all? ... make your own sense on the spot ..
Seit 10 Jahren "Kommt zu Tisch - eine Einladung an alle Religionen und Nationen" und die "Weltenbürgerdecke" aus gesammelten Teebeuteln.... Wie kam es dazu? Wer liefert die Teebeutel? Wo steht das Kunstprojekt heute ..." Der Anfang... der Weg... die Entwicklung.. der aktuelle Stand... Ist Kunst aus Teebeuteln überhaupt Kunst? ....
