Public transport is a big influence on my work.. /its where i begrudgingly spend a lot of my time and its definitely one of the strangest environments i have to endure…./.

Then once you are off and back on to the streets you call yourselves social creatures. /./../ I am not a social creature../. And to be honest i quite like the uptight silence.. /.
