If you look at the new cover of the pocket London Underground map, you might think that Transport for London are trying to delve into your inner psyche.
The new design which will be gracing our map covers for the next six months is by Cornelia Parker (the English sculptor known for blowing up a shed and arranging the fragments in a large room) and takes the form of a "Rorschach Ink Blot", which psychoanalysts use to map out their patients' emotional states.
You know the drill, "look into this blot and what do you see?"
As well as using the colours of the Underground lines, according to TfL, "Passengers will begin to recognise many other shapes and forms in the artwork and can while away their journeys making these visual associations."
I can clearly see a man in a Samurai mask more than anything else. From this psychoanalysts could deduce that I see travel on the Tube as a constant battle. Although I can imagine a lot of people will see a butterfly, which could be interpreted as having a rather transient approach to travel.
Any other images seen are welcome in the comments and I'll have a bash at interpreting them (although bear in mind I dropped my psychology A level studies after a few months)!
