York Station

BY MEG THOMAS
@ VOL 14 ON NOV 28, 2017

In "York Station" Meg Thomas explores the signs and interactions that are normally overlooked a journey through a station. She highlights the commercial takeover of the public space, and the way the passenger is de-prioritised in station design. The hyper-reality of the station space is twisted as the audience is invited to also follow a silent visual story. This undercurrent covers the personal emotions that are digested and processed as a background to everyday life.
