Time traveller

Oskar Karlin attempts to redesign the London Underground map representing the distance between stations by the travel time instead of prioritizing distance or for the sake of simplicity. Neat. Though it reminds me rather forcefully that I am not in London.

Well, I knew couldn’t just do a normal re-design; something had to be added. I started thinking what’s different in the world now from when the map was designed and one thing that are different today is time. No one has any time left any more. Time is money. Time is everything and so on. Today you never tell anyone how far away in miles you live, but in minutes or perhaps hours if you’re unlucky.
