Subway Studies

The metro is a non-place. Going by train is a passive doing. You take the train to go from one activity to another. The time inside the train is often recognized as a meaningless time. The ride itself becomes an empty space in between one’s activities.

With my project Subway Studies I try to fill this space with relevance. I seek encounters rather than avoiding it. Going by subway every day is taking so much time, that I don’t want to let it pass by passively. That’s why I want to actively use that time and draw the people I meet on the trains in quick illustrations.
