Tues 29th May: Margot Bowman's BT Artbox "MBK6"

To continue my coverage of the BT Artbox  project here are Margot Bowman 's instagram shots from the process of her "MBK6" model.  Margot's theme was to celebrate the bygone era of when we used to converse face-to-face and meet in person to communicate ............. when time literally stood still .......... and if you wanted to make a call you would literally have to remain static at the fixed receiver.  Therefore, she enlisted help from her friend Byron Pritchard to build seating into her replica red box so that the public will feel inspired to sit down with their friends and take time out to have a chat.  Before the box finds a spot on the streets of London, Harvey Nichols have it in their menswear floor and found the perfect seated mannequin for the display!  
Here you can see Margot's initial technical drawing and the layers of paint as she built up the pattern of hearts........... hearts being the symbol for having a heart-to-heart personal natter rather than public dialogue via the new social media phenomenon of sharing banter on Twitter / Facebook.  Bravo Margot! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3
