Bigger Christmas Trees by David Hockney

Battersea Power Station, London


Bringing hope and joy to Londoners.

Opened at Battersea Power Station, London. Bigger Christmas Trees presented a second collaboration as Projection Designers with world-renowned artist David Hockney after ‘David Hockney: Bigger & Closer (not smaller and further away)’, this time with a festive display projected onto the home of Apple’s new UK headquarters.

The show ran every evening from December 1st until Christmas Day, 5.00pm to 10.30pm on a ten minute loop, with a pair of Christmas trees, originally drawn on an iPad Pro, lighting up the London landmark’s two watchtowers on the building’s north facade.

It's an astonishing merging of technology and art. Not just in that it's a beautiful drawing, made on an iPad, but also that it's a wonderfully bright projection. At 100 metres high, it's a bright and grand tribute to the wonder of Hockney, Battersea Power Station (and the iPad), all in one.
