REVIEWED UNDER THE BEST OF LONDON 2009 - Time Out September
This is the poem commissioned by the Arts Council and the BFI from Sue Hubbard to make the experience of taking the underpass from Waterloo to the Imax Cinema a little less grim. It works brilliantly and is so appropriate to the subterranean setting. It takes up the whole length of the tunnel, and its both reason to linger and haunting enticement to return.
It's well worth seeing the words in situ, but you can read the poem in full here: http://downlode.org/Extext/lostcity
