London Tube Map, Manipulated


A bit of craziness here. This is a Polaroid photograph of the London tube map. While the emulsion was still soft, I smushed it around and around and around like chewing gum until I was left with this. It is complete nonsense, but maybe closer to the geographical truth than the official map.

More about the Tube Map from bloggers here, here and here.
