Subway Scenes: Philosophizing the MTA Travel Advisory
This image has been archived or removed.
At first you might think the announcements were legitimate travel advisories from the MTA. You would be wrong … and likely in the majority. These effective vinyl posters spotted on the Brooklyn-bound F platform at Delancey Street carry a high philosophical quotient. And poignant at that. Both contain a series of sequential questions strung together without any answers. Kinda like an episode of Lost.
One of them reads:
Is this love, or is it merely the best we can do right now? If this isn’t love, is it at least happiness? Would we be able to tell the difference? Are we still excited by what’s possible? Is this our story, or someone else’s? If not ours, then whose? Is this something we can still believe in? Is it at least something that we can live with?
The other one is similar in nature, beginning with the query, “Is this what we expected?” Neither passage is tagged with an author or vandal responsible for the placement. Any ideas? Hit us up.
