platform for art
the london underground runs a unique program called platform for art that uses the tube stations as art galleries for upcoming artists. what a splendid way to promote new talent as well as treat daily commuters to a visually appealing side of the station. h and i are currently in temporary housing, located about five minutes from the gloucester road (pronounced “gloster”) tube station, one of the participating stations in this program. commuters using the central and district line platforms are currently enjoying brazilian artist beatriz milhaze's “peace and love” installation instead of being bombarded by advertisements. i love how milhaze's work plays off the tube stations' gorgeous architecture. i take the central line to work every day and am quite amazed at how milhaze’s work is so energizing in the morning and so soothing when i come home.
