Oil Stick Work
Transport for London (TfL) complains about lack of funds, but it can waste money on projects for Art on the Underground, such as John Gerrard's Oil Stick Work at Canary Wharf Underground Station. It's one of those installation thingies, using customised game-design software to create a moving virtual world: construction work on a desolate Midwest prairie. Yawn. I'm sure passengers would rather have a better service from TfL. And no wonder the staff keep going on strike when they see money being wasted on management ego-trips like this. Gerrard began a new wall this month. Don't all rush to see it: closed for Christmas. It reopens on 6 January.
