Pepsi Max Cherry’s Gif-iti installation

Pepsi Max Cherry has teamed up with Gif-iti artist Insa to create an artwork that springs to life through smartphones and tablets. Available to view for one day only at Ely’s Yard in London, the installation was inspired by three fans’ interpretations of the cherry drink - including those of pop star Charlie XCX who described the taste as "roaring through icy glaciers with pink cherry lips and glittery diamond eyes".

Where: Ely’s Yard, The Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane, London E1 6QL

When: 27 February, 5.30pm-10.30pm

Where: The Bullring, Birmingham B5 4BU

When: 26-28 February
