What Is The City, But The People? 2009

"This piece came out of frustration with travelling in Britain and just being hounded all the time by continual messages about remembering to get on and off trains and take your things with you and so on. I produced a book of quotations for people who work on London Underground's Piccadilly Line to read out, if they wanted to, among all these standard announcements, as a way of giving them licence to say other things and inject an element of unpredictability into a journey."
