Upstream Tracks, Trails and Treasure Hunt - Whimsy

16 Feb, 2021

Whimsy is a site-specific bespoke treasure hunt that speaks to the child in all of us. A series of tiny, playful projection works are installed along a trail in semi-hidden locations for you to discover. A fish swims in a tea cup half hidden among foliage. A cloud of butterflies emerge from a treasure box. A child plays hide and seek inside a stack of books.

Designed to be a safely distanced, projection experience, Whimsy encourages small groups to engage with fanciful, improbable imagery that could have sprung from any
child’s playful imagination.
