A moving canvas

SpacingWire reader Paul Bowser pointed us towards an art project called Moving Canvas from Berlin that excites and scares the hell out of me — a video projector is attached to the side of a subway train and projects images onto the walls of the tunnels [Quick Time movie]. It is a great idea and wonderfully executed, but will probably be used in the near future for advertising purposes. It doesn’t have to be this way — if the TTC wanted to really add some pizzazz to our transit system, something like the Moving Canvas project would be more than ideal. Don’t forget, you can submit your great ideas how how to liven up the TTC. Check out their website or email them directly. We’ve had numerous people tell the TTC to sell our subway station buttons.
