Artwork Description: Tick Tock is a hand cut deck of custom playing cards, which is also designed by the artist. The playing card design connects with Priscilla’s passion for stories, illustration and her performances as a playing card illusionist. By utilising layering and subtraction of intricate sections the observer is presented with a little snippet of the world of Alice in Wonderland, akin to a diorama viewpoint. The meticulous cutaways create the sense of falling down the rabbit hole, just as Alice did.
