Art on the Tube

What maniac decided to waste money on Art on the Underground in 2000? The Tube is full of adverts far more interesting, more attractive and more artistic than anything Tamsin Dillon and her team of curators have produced so far. Transport for London's farcical notion of enriching the journeys of millions of people on the Tube every day is not only a waste of money, but also a waste of advertising space. Above is one of the latest crop of 15 artworks commissioned by TfL: Goshka Macuga's I came by Tube (2013). I assume this is a naughty "found image" with Tube map and Tube bra added with Photoshop or the like (CLICK). The new posters will appear in June at four stations: Gloucester Road, Southwark, St James’s Park and London Bridge. How about cancelling this tosh and reducing fares? Have the humility to put it to a passengers' vote.

More wasted money when they could have used it for a better service. Most of the time you don't see them because you waiting for a train and moaning or you are standing up and trying not to fall down.
