You might ask why we support art at the station. Well that's easy, we do it because we believe that people want to be in places which hold interest for them, which stimulate their thoughts and which provide a little respite to what can otherwise seem a very mundane world - particularly for those who commute every day to and from their place of work.
Public art plays an integral role in any big city. Whether it's Paris, Berlin, Rio or in this case London - art created solely for public consumption and enjoyment should express the aspirations of that city's inhabitants, its visitors and its workers. An important injection of joy into the average person's day.
Not since Christian Marclay's The Clock has art been such a cinematic experience as it is with Artangel's latest project, Audio Obscura in St Pancras station by poet Lavinia Greenlaw.
