New Perspectives Mosaics Charis Tsevis

The Emirates Air Line (also known as the Thames cable car) is a ten-minute (five minutes in rush hour) gondola lift link across the River Thames in London, England built by Transport for London with sponsorship from Emirates. Since the beginning of the summer of 2014 the cable cars of the Air Line are carrying the new Emirates creative. The campaign is focused on ‘seeing different perspectives’ as Emirates is supporting TfL to deliver an innovative method of transport and a previously unseen view of London. The creative is designed to link the Emirates network to the sponsorship of the Air Line. Geometry Global asked me to create 38 mosaics for this campaign. For every destination we used several hundreds of different views of the same landmark.

Got this question from an anonymous follower:

Would you have or be able to mock up a map of what the London transit map would look like now that TfL have taken over all suburban rail traffic?

For those not in the loop, Transport for London (TfL) will be bringing the operations of all the various train franchises that currently provide suburban or commuter rail service in the Greater London area under the “Overground” umbrella as their contracts expire. This means the changeover will be staggered up through 2019 or 2020, so any new unified map will change incrementally. But basically, the map above (available on the TfL website here) already shows the system, and it’s quite the tangled web.

Of course, the fact that all the rail services will be branded as the Overground has caused many to wonder if all these myriad lines will be recoloured in that service’s distinctive orange. (Dear god, I hope not!) I would like to think that the Overground and Underground will be separated out into two distinct maps, as (as the image above shows), the whole network is too much for the genteel old world style of the Beck map to handle.

Here’s one take on the combined map:

While I suggest that TfL’s map designers might just lose their minds:

Búscate una loca… Búscate una loca, de las de remate. De las que cuando piensas que ya no puede hacer algo más estúpido, va y te sorprende con algo inesperado. Busca a quién se ría a carcajadas, sin importarle dónde se encuentra o quién tenga alrededor. Quién te cuente chistes malos y haga bromas tontas sin que puedas evitar y no sepas por qué. Que cante por la calle con la música de algún coche e intente que tú también lo hagas. Que baile bajo la lluvia sin preocuparse por su peinado. Búscate una pesada, de las que juegan con tus puntos débiles o manías sabiendo que consiguen desquiciarte, provocando en ti unas ganas locas de ahogarla, pero con abrazos. Busca un irracional, humilde, sencilla y directa. Que llore, que grite, que tenga carácter. Que te monte numeritos pero que los compense con muy buenas escenas. Que no sepas como va a reaccionar, que tenga múltiples personalidades y consiga enamorarte con cada una de ellas. Y que solamente puedas hacerla callar con besos. Esa persona que hará todo lo posible por sacarte una sonrisa en los momentos más duros, que te dará la mano y no te soltará hasta que esté completamente segura de que no pierdes el equilibrio. Quien no haga falta que te diga nada, porque con la mirada te lo dirá todo. Que te entregará todo desde el minuto uno sin pedir nada a cambio. Busca una persona con quién pierdas la noción del tiempo y del espacio… Búscate una loca.

Jeremy Deller, 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.”

When we first talked to each other
I knew we would always be friends.
Our friendship has kept on growing
And I’ll be here for you to the end.

You listen when I have a problem
And help dry the tears from my face.
You take away my sorrow
And put happiness in its place.

We can’t forget the fun we’ve had
Laughing ‘til our faces turn blue.
Talking of things only we find funny
People think we’re insane-If they only knew!

I guess this is my way of saying thanks
For catching me when I fall.
Thanks once again for being such a good friend
And being here with me through it all.

-Lyn :)
