Tube Philosophies

We came across this image today, taken recently at London’s King’s Cross station. While it’s nice to think that London Underground sanction this kind of freedom of expression in their employees, we believe it might be the work of artist Jeremy Deller. The artist had apparently been set to collaborate with LU staff on a series of pieces as part of the wider Art on the Underground programme, as Tamsin Dillon, head of the project explains in the current issue of CR: “Jeremy has come up with a booklet of quotes by the famous and not-so-famous and staff will be invited to use those in their communications with customers.” So, if this is Deller’s work, then there may be more underground philosophising to come. Keep ’em peeled.
