A mixed media installation transporting children from the wards, and taking them on a surprising and entertaining journey to the operating theatre. Peepshow Illustration Collective have created a route that incorporates hand-painted elements, sculpture and vibrant wallpapers. Follow the line drawn along the route as it climbs up into the ceiling, then dive deep underwater to discover glimmering jewels. A confetti welcome awaits patients at the end of the journey; a celebratory carnival before a triumphant launch up to space.
