Reminiscent of a fairy junkyard or an apocalyptic carnival, Toxic Wonderland is a theatrical externalisation of the Tarot de Marseille and Stephenson's pain-colour synesthesia. The installation encourages viewers to question how the occult has influenced our engagement and hospitality towards non-human, non-being entities.
