THOMAS & LAURIE CLARK

Untitled

Thomas and Laurie are poets and curators who have worked closely with a wide range of artists at the Cairn Gallery, in Nailsworth, Gloucestershire. Taken from a trip to the island of North Uist this bus timetable reflects their interest in text and the "imaginative supplement" of poetry. You sit in one place reading about another.

The timetable works in the same way; "a passenger may be physically in Hackney, or passing Kings Cross, but in imagination enjoying the open, wind-swept spaces of the Hebrides."

With the passengers faced with such possible destinations as Stoneybridge and Grimsay Turn, maybe, just maybe someone might say "Cabbie, forget Paddington take me to Lochmaddy Pier!"
