Continuing the theme of time travel – a London Dada mini series to co-incide with MKGallery’s
present exhibition “ How to Construct a Time Machine”  that links to our Work 404 from 2010
Dada Time Machine

Given that each of the concentric rings found in cross-sections of sawn trees marks one cycle of
the seasons – or one solar year, the above “Time Tunnel” represents around 40 years, or
a virtual peering back to the 1970s, the time when the tree was a mere sapling.

Work No. 726; Sweet Sanctuary

respite from unremittingly grim
  Sweet Sanctuary
  c. Michael St.Mark 2013

.

 London Underground  District Line platform; Hammersmith

The only relief, such as it is, from the unremittingly grim and dehumanizing experience of travelling on
the capital’s rail network; is to strike it lucky in finding the occasional snack & soft drinks kiosk snuck
begrudgingly away in some cupboard hole in a supporting pillar or else set into a filthy grime-encrusted
station wall corner, TFL  giving SFA deference to the basic needs and comforts of its long-suffering,
extortionate fare-paying customers –  oh and try finding a London Underground public convenience
anywhere below ground.
.

The real agenda behind the dash for privatization

Fatcat profits before people – same old Oxbridge jobs-for-the-boys’ snouts-in-the-trough CEO / management ethos.
London – about the most vibrant capital in the world, yet its  underground network shuts down after midnight even
on Saturdays, presumably because it’s not cost-effective afterwards, forcing crowds of revellers thronging the streets
to work out a random bus to get home or else pay through the black cab nose.
  Totally uncivilized and 3rd world backwards mentality.
Go to Paris and spot the (massive) difference in the way the French travelling public are treated. ( Saturday’s Metro runs
through until 2.15am Sunday morning and with vastly superior comfort and facilities )

If it doesn’t make a good profit, cut it.. and sod the travelling public – thats TFL.

TFL tosh
* Sir Peter Hendy needs to look at his own shabby 20th C. run-down excuse for a transport system before pinning blame
other run-down privatized profit b4 public nightmare operators.
