Talk To me – Margot Bowman 2012, part of the BT ArtBox Project that celebrate 20 years of Childline, in situ outside of London's Old Vic Theatre . The K6 phonebox (designed in 1935) represents a time when people communicated privately from a fixed position, one-on-one conversation which seem to be so rare. Now we communicate in an increasingly public and on the-go way: writing on Facebook walls or Tweeting so that our conversations are visible to everyone.

This Christmas The Town hall Hotel has some very special visitors. The Clanimals of Hackney have come in from the cold and will be keeping residence over the Christmas period. These half beast half tree creatures spend most of the year collecting colour and pattern from around the neighbourhood, from Columbia Road to Shadwell Green, storing them deep inside their eyelids. Only during the winter months do they release their colour, battling the God of Grey that takes over the city during the winter. Don’t worry things are exactly as they seem – your just looking from at reality fr... read more

Christmas decorations of the future chapter 2 (of 3) Get transported 50 years into the future, where Christmas decor in 2062 seeks to enliven a society devoid of today's comforts. The ‘Beau-tee’ uses positive energy to infuse our soon-to-be artificial world with nature in the form of holly, mistletoe and other Christmas flora. The ‘Anxi-oh,’ meanwhile, has tentacles that soak up our anxieties to create a stress-free season—something we could likely use today, too. Sound excellently provided by Kai Fish, animation perfectly executed by read more
Christmas Decorations of the Future, Chapter 1 (of 3) Fast-forwarding to a dystopian future where time is precious, silence is rare and true affection a luxury, illustrator Margot Bowman animates the extroverted, energetic Christmas decorations that she imagines will join us for the holidays several decades from now. In this first installment of a three-part, animated series, we are introduced to the ‘Huggeration’, an outgoing bauble that senses when people in the room feel lonely, and responds with TLC.
