Gold Card Adventures

I'm a big fan of TFL's Platform for Art, where what would normally be profitable public transport advertising spaces are used for public art. Sometimes the art is odd, but sometimes you get something that changes your perspective in a big way...

One of the latter is the current exhibition at Piccadilly Circus station.

Called Gold Card Adventures, and is a series of postcard images of places that the artist Ellie Harrison would have visited if the total length of her tube journeys for a year had been somewhere other than across the metropolis. As her site says:
ALL OF THE LONDON TRANSPORT JOURNEYS ELLIE MADE IN A ONE YEAR PERIOD WERE RECORDED. A CUMULATIVE DISTANCE OF 9236.6 KILOMETRES WAS TRAVELLED - THE EQUIVALENT OF TRAVELLING FROM EALING TO SHANGHAI!
