One Thing Leads to Another – Everything is Connected is part of a new series in collaboration with Art on the Underground. Each year Art on the Underground focuses its temporary commissions programme on a specific tube line on the London Underground network and this book centres on the Jubilee Line.

Artists for the Jubilee line series were invited to make new works that explored ideas around time, economics and travel, and how our relationships with these concepts have changed since the Jubilee line opened in 1979. Each project in the series brings a new understanding of the notion of time in the context of the tube; providing insights into how we use our time when we travel, what broader ideas influence our reasons for travel and the nature of our individual and collective relationships with time, the network and the city.

With newly commissioned essays on the history of the Jubilee line, and how it changed the fabric of London, by David Rooney, Curator of Transport at the Science Museum, London, as well as a new piece on the notion of time and the city, by author and publisher Matthew Stadler, One Thing Leads To  Another—Everything Is Connected is a rich document of the Jubilee line series and an exciting exploration of temporary artwork in the public realm.
