Shadow Theatre highlights and animates broken toys from the collection, repeating their history of play as a form of haunting. The work was inspired by traditional European shadow theaters and wonder cabinets.
Our House Intern, Katie Shlon, has been making drawings of house and garden spaces with hopes to turn some of these images into wallpaper for Elsewhere’s common areas. Here’s what she had to say about the pieces:
"I made these drawings during some quiet weekends at Elsewhere. They’re fun to do and a great way to stay engaged in active looking.The drawings are little snippets of our surroundings, things that I look at everyday and think are interesting. We’re surrounded by tons of stuff at Elsewhere so it’s nice to just focus in on small parts of the environment. The drawings themselves take into account the energy of each object and reflect my own perception of the character."
