Catalogue of London Underground Maps


This ‘Catalogue of London Underground Maps’ – maps combined and reconstructed – seems to have a connection with Ryan Gander’s ‘Your life in four acts- Forward’ (2008) in that both works take a wider view of these diagrammatical representations. Ryan Gander’s piece points to socio-economic changes, where town planners have replaced the more organic structures (The Custard Factory) with more economically viable enterprises.
My work, ‘Catalogue of London Underground Maps’ attempts to provide an expansive visual encapsulation of the look of London Underground Maps. It could point to how ubiquitous the imagery has become, how easily the maps have been reproduced, and how we repeatedly use the transit system.
