'The Disused Hospital’ : A Mill+ Halloween Installation
For the two weeks leading up to Halloween, The Mill’s Windmill Street studio was transformed into a blood-curdling ‘Disused Hospital’ Halloween installation brought to life by the Mill+ team; complete with medicine trolley, hospital signage, bloody handprints and blood transfusion bags. The studio’s frontage featured crime-scene tape, smashed glass and bespokely designed warning signage.
Sweets resembling body parts were displayed in kidney dishes, themed cupcakes complete with syringes of blood/jam proved tempting enough not to put people off the mutilated fingers and eyeballs that decorated them were available for all in The Loft alongside a suitably titled ‘Formaldehyde Fizz’ cocktail.
Additional experiential details included a pumpkin carving surgery with all of the ‘patients’ entered into a competition, and a face painter who was on hand to transform staff and clients alike into The Disused Hospital victims.
