21 April - 23 September 2012

Imagine the walls of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre coming alive with living wallpapers made of animated texts and quotes from Shakespearean characters.

Reach up and touch the patterns and see them turn into insect-like creatures that will scuttle off, scared, leaving words and curses in their wake.

Stand and watch and the creatures may venture forwards, wanting to befriend with messages and questions.

Commissioned for the World Shakespeare Festival.
