Variation on The Great Bear

Worldwide "Tube" Maps

The ever ranting Jon Justice kindly sent me a link to
the following site, saying that I couldn't have seen it.

He was right, I hadn't although am not exactly sure what it is:

World Tube Map

Well it seems to be an art project similar to Simon Patterson's Great Bear.

Detail from European MapThe digital arts site - Gallerisation says: "Humans have always made connections. This ability is one of the corner stones of our success as a species. Underground explores various aspects of our world and how we associate with it."

So we have various views of the world map but drawn as a London Underground Tube map. Each variation is centred around a particular continent and the "station" or country names reflect this.

Get yours now on stretched canvas for the bargain price of £345 - still I spose they are cheaper than the original price of The Great Bear.
