A Journey Around my Pencil Case, 2012
Routes to Theatres
6th and 7th floor corridors, lift lobbies, anaesthetic rooms and recovery wards
A Journey Around my Pencil Case is 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 the end of the journey; a celebratory carnival before a triumphant launch up to space.
Chrissie Macdonald (born in London in 1976) and Andrew Rae (born London 1976) are illustrators based in east London. Part of the celebrated illustration collective Peepshow, their work has formed part of major campaigns as well as in exhibitions in London and internationally.
