Turning ad space into art space >> http://www.newtracksexhibition.co.uk/ - groovy idea, me thinks... might help calm franatic nerves on the underground. I remember crying once on the tube in London, I was so stressed.

yep - that's interesting. I remember they did a series of poetry on the underground.
I particularly remember this one from the late Robert Calvert of Hawkwind:_

Circle Line

Seeing that I still had eight more stops
To go, and already read
The maps and advertisements from end to end,
And studied my own double-
Eyed, four-eye-browed freak
Of a reflected face for far too long; I took
To noticing another. Through a kind

Of snooker-shot of glances
Aimed against the glass, I could see her
Staring; but could not be sure
If it was at me. I smiled,
And saw her turn to speak
To someone next to her. I also turned:
And unexpectedly our eyes engaged

For just the instant that it takes for looks
To rocket through the tunnels
Of an unguarded gaze, and arrive
At the real self. Badly shaken
With embarrasment, we both looked back
At our images: safely imprisoned
In the hurtling stillness of the glass.


> In 1975 Calvert won the Capital Radio Poetry Award with CIRCLE LINE

Sounds like a good idea, I expect they would get more interest if they had a website that wasn't 100% images though Rolling Eyes
