A Happy Hour Agency Project
November 7th & 8th, 2015
We will probe the depths in order to find new meanings in the darkness.
We will be in awe of great wonders!
We will shiver in fear of the vast unknown!
We will explore, and we will never stop.
Hypertube was an immersive culinary experience built from the ground up by Happy Hour Agency. The event and environment was based on the aesthetics of sci-fi space travel, biological science, and late 20th century sports graphics systems. Each cocktail and plate of food experienced by the guest was designed to blend seamlessly together to create a single immersive experience.
Hypertube featured five exploratory drinks by Irene Martinez, an original mural by Ben Sanders, and a new roster of artist collaborators. A custom event-specific soundtrack was provided by Jonathan Crisman, and Ben's mural incorporated projected animations by Jen Stark, Alvaro Ilizarbe, Aaron Bjork, and David Bayus. Hypertube was also the first Happy Hour Agency pop-up to feature a four-course tasting menu in collaboration with Chef Anthony Martin.
