Art from antique ticket stubs

I am consistantly struck by the incredible innovation displayed by Seoul Metro. Seoul Metro is second to none in creating new concepts for public transportation as a continuum with art, education and daily life. I am planning to interview CEO of Seoul Metro, Mr. Kim Ikgwan, when I get back to Seoul.


This work  of art, titled “My Face?” seems to speaking for Seoul Metro itself. Made up of the metro tickets previously employed by Seoul Metro arranged in the shape of faces, I found it most mysterious. It goes beyond the usual “feel good” designs of public transportation to suggest an effort at true artistic expression. Many such works are springing up in Seoul Metro these days.
