'Art' On The Tube

Here's a choice item for Londoners who struggled into work during today's strike by Underground workers over the proposed loss of 800 jobs. As part of a series of "artworks" commissioned for the Jubilee Line, Daria Martin surveyed 800 passengers at ten different Jubilee Line stations to discover their daydreams. Her purported aim was to "uncover their susceptibility to 'absorption' i.e. to getting wrapped up in their own inner world or their subjective perceptions" (title link). What a load of bull! Hey, Bouncy Boris, before your minions in Transport for London get rid of 800 useful jobs, why not ditch TfL's money-wasting Art On The Underground programme? How much does this inartistic nonsense cost?
