The Space Between Two Mad Tea Parties
‘Mad tea party’ is a reference to Lewis Carroll’s novel Alice in Wonderland. It is a surreal and intense event – perhaps not far from situations you would experience in real life!
The Space Between Two Mad Tea Parties is a visualization of the mental space between such experiences. A potential space for reflection. A timeout, where thoughts can float. A vacuum before the next event.
In the ceiling, a table is hanging upside down. Gravity is pulling the silver tableware until the pieces can no longer resist and slowly leaves the tabletop.
Some pieces are already hanging in the air, slowly falling towards the ground. Some meet on their way down, resulting in change of direction and shape. Others have, for the moment, retrieved their original shape.
