Project 269: The London Undergound

269 The Project

It took 2 years to complete Project 269 - one photograph from every station on the London Underground network.

The collections in this gallery let you browse all of the images line-by-line; or here on this page you can find out more about the whole project.

You can buy the images as posters, or prints, or cards, or tote-bags or whatever really - and doing so would be an enormous help; or if…

Manhood

The Bare Reality

Manhood: The bare reality is a project by Laura Dodsworth to photograph 100 men's genitals and to capture the stories of their relationship with 'masculinity'.

Woodworking

Designing a curio cabinet

This project looks at designing a woodwork project and explored:

  • Having and forming ideas

  • 3D modelling of conceptual designs

  • 3D modelling for construction

Where do ideas come from? To be honest, it hardly matters, except to say they're not so much invented as discovered. There's really no such thing as “genius” – some exclusive band of people churning out ideas for society; most genius types I've met have really been little more than over possessive knowledge-thiefs. No, ideas are just there, hanging about waiting to be discovered through the act of discourse; simply by interacting with our world and with others in it. There's quite a nice little article on this over on lifehack.org. We can all of us have ideas, and if we trust and challenge them we can turn them into fact.

My woodworking articles are all about this belief that any of us can do anything any other human can do given the will, tenacity and rightful approach. I just don't believe that we're limited by birth – death is the limiting thing in our lives, not birth! I guess that learning to 'do woodwork', at my age, has somewhat moved me... BUT OF COURSE, it's way more complex than this given society's oppressive forces; what I mean is there's far too many external barriers already in place to allow our own internal barriers any place in our lives. Perhaps I'll write more on this, but not here.

So for this project I wanted to start from…

Manorlogz

Three poems filmed by 4frontTV for their Manorlogz project. They don't seem to have been active now since 2013 - I hope they have saved their output somewhere as it would have been a great archive; this was a most excellent project.

Devotee was broadcast on Christmas day kind of like an alternative Christmas message.

Far Too Many was my very first performance poem, so I'm particularly pleased to have such a good video recording of it.

Plaything was apparently a little too risque for their tastes!
