Commissioned by Resort Studios for For the Love of Colour as part of Turner Contemporary's Summer of Colour, WB CT9 (Winch Box Margate) is a story box. It is an interactive audio sculpture that hauls in and disseminates voices of Margate.

Three artist were comissioned to create interactive artwork as part of For the Love of Colour- Made For Margate by Margate, a summer long programme focusing on outdoor arts in Margate. Three artists were commissioned to deliver an interactive design trail inspired by Turner Contemporary’s exhibition as part of Margate’s Summer of Colour.

The trail is sited alongside other associated programmed events in Margate as part of Summer of Colour and leads visitors up to arts events at Resort Studios in Cliftonville. The project is designed to encourage visitors to venture from Turner Contemporary along the trail and up into Cliftonville.

The project explored building a model of working collaboratively within the arts in the public realm and co-creating high quality interactive installations with Rachel, the other selected artists and a group of young people aged 13-25.

The main audio track was a spliced-up version of a song written by the young people in collaboration with Oliver 'Kotchin' Seager, a Kent based music producer. Other voices included on push button sound boxes were an excepert from 'For Love for Work' a poem by poet Lemn Sissay, an excerpt from 'Margate' by ChasnDave and 'The Old Man and the Sea' by spoken word poet Emrys Plant.

Funded through Arts Council England’s Grants for the Arts programme and by Turner Contemporary as part of Summer of Colour. Margate based artist Rachel Ella Taylor lead the project, working in partnership with Turner Contemporary, MACH (Margate Arts Cultural Herritage), People United, and Youth Engagement specialist Stephen Fenning.
