The collection contains series of photographs made by different artists from around the world. It is an expression of the abstract relationship between tea and time in one bound publication.

'' It's like we put time into a container to exam it by an action, as a result, we make a timer. Once I was told if I walk from the station to my friend's house, it would take shuffling three songs in my ipod. Or I'll know how long does it pass when one sugar cube has melted completely. We hear tic-tac. We make tea. We wait for film to be developed. We see leaves fallen from the tree. And eventually, we all grow a timer in our own body.''
- Words from the editor, Shauba Chang.


茶之爲用,味至寒,爲飲,最宜精行儉德之人。若熱渴、凝悶、腦疼、目澁、四支煩、百節不舒,聊四五啜,與醍醐、甘露抗衡也。—— 陸羽 《茶經》

「計時器」是瑞典生活品牌 Afteroom 和 Waterfall 的合作產物,包裝的呈現結合書本與茶磚。茶磚作為一個抽象的計時器,以沖泡茶葉的時間長度為發想編輯。內容收錄有台灣、日本、俄國等地的攝影師作品,作品的主題意象圍繞著時間,以呼應抽象的計時概念。


就像是我們會知道從家裡走到搭車的地方之間耳機裡放了幾首歌,計時器總是默默地在我們身體裡生長著。
