This week high street giant Heal’s hits an impressive 200 years old.

As part of the celebrations, eighteen students from UCL’s fine art school Slade will have their work exhibited in the windows of the chain’s flagship store on Tottenham Court Road.

But these aren’t just any old window display collaborations: they are interactive, letting shoppers participate in a variety of artistic activities, and will either be sold to customers or given to the V&A after seven days.

So, if you want tomorrow’s artists to take your portrait with a vintage pinhole camera, paint a growing forest on the window panes or even – yes, it is actually true – catch your breath for you, you had better get a move on.

Carmel, that is great news! I am glad you enjoyed it. What is the print like? Do you know who it was by? I am longing to check out the pinhole photography…
