Mind the Gap
How can we reinterpret the experience/environment of the London Underground to stimulate interaction between passengers?
Our goal is to redefine the experience of the tube to subtlety trigger points of connection and interaction - to change withdrawn and aloof tendencies to amiable and approachable individuals. We will redefine the traditional interior landscape of the London tube car to provoke behaviors that indicate friendliness and or connection; allowing people to make eye contact, smile, laughter, and awareness of other individuals. These indicators are behaviors are basic signs of friendliness that people enact when open to meeting new people. In this way we are unconsciously changing the behavior of the passengers to make them appear more open and receptive to meeting others, ultimately making the experience of taking the London Underground a more relaxing and pleasurable one.
