Overview

Christopher Ross, philosopher and traveller, decided to cease his journeyings and go underground, quite literally. Seeking an antidote to incurable restlessness, he chose to work for a year as a Station Assistant at Oxford Circus Station. After Training School, where he is taught how not to electrocute himself and always to look in the eye a member of the public as they are assaulting you, he faces up to his new duties with a mixture of curiosity and foreboding. What, exactly, will he find deep under the surface of London? Tunnel Visions is a mixture of lived experience in the surreal world of London's Underground and the more elevated ideas, thoughts, and imaginings that experience provokes. Oxford Circus Station, complete with its weeping wall, its streakers, and buskers, is a Plato's Cave of reflection and human comedy.
