Part of a larger Alice in Wonderland Exhibition for ACMI, Grumpy Sailor conceptualised, wrote, created & installed the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party exhibition. In this fantastical, trippy & magical installation we set out to create a tea party experience that honoured the Mad Hatter's vision of a place unlike anywhere you've been before. The fully projection-mapped room is the ultimate tea party - guests sit down at the table, in front of 3D printed crockery, and treated to a table coming alive in front of their eyes, via a multi-channel CGI video, projected and synchronised throughout the room.
