We have partnered with a leading British artist, Samara Scott and art organisation, Eastside Projects, to commission a series of contemporary artworks to feature on on our new timetable.
Our new timetable starts from 17 May and is available to download on our website now.
The timetable features work by Samara Scott, one of the rising stars of a new generation of British artists, who uses innovative processes and tools to capture and distort live images through moving windows, magazines and iPads.
The work, entitled ‘Still Life’, is a collection of images that have emerged from Scott’s research into the fractured landscape we experience as we travel. They celebrate and capture a sensual imagining of weather and screens, two very British occupations! Each pocket timetable contains a droplet of landscape with warped reflections through glass of sky, strip lights and phone screens. Scott explains: “I just want them to look really bright, pop, concentrated, sharp, tangy...’
The artwork will also be displayed at Birmingham Moor Street, reinforcing how stations can be used as inspirational spaces to showcase art.
As part of the Chiltern Art Collaboration, the train operator has also worked with artists Bill Drummond, Gunilla Klingberg and most recently, Heather and Ivan Morison.
