Vintage 1950s advertising posters in disused passageways

"Vintage 1950s advertising posters in disused passageways at Notting Hill Gate tube station, London - photographed in 2010

Many people now know the story of the uncovered and disused ex-lift passageways in Notting Hill Gate tube station that LU workers rediscovered in 2010 after 50 years of being sealed up. ...

This view looks towards where the stairs down to the lifts would have been and shows the original 1900 tiled finishes along with a wall of posters, the Victor Galbraith 'Party Travel' poster, with an elephant, issued by London Transport itself being prominent.

The posters and passageways have, after much thought, been re-entombed and are again inaccessible so please don't pester the station staff"

(London Transport + Mikey Ashworth, 24 May 2010)

Running the Numbers: contemporary North American culture through the austere lens of statistics

"Running the Numbers looks at contemporary American culture through the austere lens of statistics. Each image portrays a specific quantity of something: fifteen million sheets of office paper (five minutes of paper use); 106,000 aluminum cans (thirty seconds of can consumption) and so on. My hope is that images representing these quantities might have a different effect than the raw numbers alone, such as we find daily in articles and books. Statistics can feel abstract and anesthetizing, making it difficult to connect with and make meaning of 3.6 million SUV sales in one year, for example, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or 32,000 breast augmentation surgeries in the U.S. every month.

This project visually examines these vast and bizarre measures of our society, in large intricately detailed prints assembled from thousands of smaller photographs. Employing themes such as the near versus the far, and the one versus the many, I hope to raise some questions about the roles and responsibilities we each play as individuals in a collective that is increasingly enormous, incomprehensible, and overwhelming."

Collaborative Design: V&A - Design A Tile

"Visitors have been encouraged to become more involved with the V&A website through a number of projects. This demonstration will focus on four of the more interactive elements of the site. Some of these features have already proved to be very popular, others are still in the trial stages - all of them provide excellent scope for further development.

Design a Tile interactive
This Flash interactive was an extremely popular part of an Arts and Crafts exhibition microsite. Users are able to design their own tiles by adding and manipulating patterns and defining colour schemes through an intuitive Flash interface. Finished tile designs are added to a gallery and, crucially, users are encouraged to comment on each other's creations."
