Seasons Through the Looking Glass

Alice's adventure in Wonderland begins with a protracted fall though a tunnel. She came across three gardeners busily painting the white roses redl A cartouche-shaped topiary bejeweled with rose blossoms stood in the V&ATunnel Entrance. Its trunk and twigs constructed from honeycomb paper sandwich panels, its flowers from rolled recycled garments that change to reflect the seasons. A large looking glass in the foot tunnel immediately beyond the entrance portal mirrors the topiary structure, infinitely extending the V&A in virtual space. The baroque strains of Vivakli's Four Seasons flow along the station-museum link. The intersection of visual and audio paths marks the entrance to the museum. °Seasons Through the Looking Glass" is a mufti-sensory and tactile intervention exploring the spatial possibilities of a subterranean garden.
