Sandpit: Ghosts, Toast and the Things Unsaid

29 Oct - 20 Nov

Steve and Maude are keeping secrets.

Do you want to hear them? 

Become their ghosts and haunt the kitchen where they fell in love, grew old and apart.

Our latest VR Commission, Ghosts, Toast and the Things Unsaid is an intimate virtual reality experience that explores the thoughts we don't share, the desires we keep covered and how they affect our relationships.

Please Note: Strictly limited to 24 tickets per day.

  • Ghosts, Toast and the Things Unsaid is a collaboration between Google’s Creative Lab, Grumpy Sailor and ACMI X resident, Sandpit.

    Sandpit create immersive, personal experiences that change people. They place audiences right at the centre of interactive experiences that connect physical things to the digital world.

    Sandpit was founded in 2012 and is a collaboration between Directors Sam Haren, Robin Moyer and Dan Koerner, who between them have diverse experience in creating live events, screen media, digital content and developing new technologies. Past works include My 52 Tuesdays (Closer Productions), The Beginning of Nature (Australian Dance Theatre), Dial-A-Story (Penguin Books), I-Animal (Melbourne Zoo).

    Grumpy Sailor is an agile, creative laboratory experimenting with digital technology and storytelling, and they have spent the past four years exploring these areas through their relationship with Google's Creative Lab in Sydney, as well as with partners and collaborators including WWF-Australia, The Sydney Opera House, The Adelaide Fringe, The Royal Shakespeare Company, Art Gallery of NSW, Bell Shakespeare and The NSW State Library. Grumpy Sailor is the technology build partner for this commission.
