Linear – Dryden Goodwin

19 December 2012

Linear, by Dryden Goodwin, is a collection of portraits of Jubilee line staff created for Art on the Underground. The 60 pencil drawings of staff at work, or at moments of pause in their day, are each accompanied by a film of the portrait being made. The films include fragments of the conversation between artist and ‘sitter’, together forming an intimate and diverse social portrait of this community of workers.

Linear was presented from 2010-11 across the Underground as posters, leaflets, on LCD screens, at key exhibition sites and online via the Art on the Underground website.

This film, created by Dryden Goodwin, presents the myriad of ways of which the project was displayed across the Tube.
