Equinox Head is a mutated children’s toy from the 80s, containing poisonous green slime. It is thought the green substance is also hallucinogenic. Originally a benign plastic toy, this final form of Equinox Head is a known contaminant and must be avoided. Equinox Head is said to have a ‘sad look in his eyes’, but this is probably a rumour.

A rare collection of digital trading cards by artist Ben Wheele. Using CGI animation, Wheele constructs a fantastical world of sinister creatures and digital hybrids available for your ownership. The collection attempts to reinterpret the sparkling, holographic nostalgia of 80s-90s trading cards. Ben Wheele’s work is often found lurking in the "dark side of YouTube," a little-known zone of mysterious videos, which generate all sorts of conspiracy theories and terrified reaction videos online. His project 'Top 5 Animation Containers' (2019) began life as a short animation that replicates the style of a WatchMojo ‘Countdown’ video to explore how viral memes evolve. Using a cast of fictitious or impossible animated characters, Wheele explores the weird psychosocial materiality of being ‘always online’.
