‘I am Curious’ is a collective of commuters inspired to bring momentary engagement – through unexpected installations of curiosity and humour – to the socially dysfunctional London Underground.
The fast city pace and over stimulus can stifle our intrigue in others. We look for opportunities to disengage with our environment and the people in it as a method of self-preservation. With its well-known codes of behaviour, the Tube provides an ideal opportunity for disconnection. The collective however believes the London Underground has a civic responsibility beyond the pure functionality of a transport system.
‘I am Curious’ endeavours to activate the Tube carriage through user inspired design installations (by the commuter, for the commuter) to highlight the power people have to create new social discourse through their actions within the built environment.
