another train to Transcentral?
I also checked out the ADPRiotTour exhibit at the Royal Academy, presented by one-time KLF-er Jimmy Cauty. A six foot square container, most casual visitors were walking past it. I stopped to look through the little holes drilled in the sides.
It shows a modelled microcosm of a dystopian Britain, with some kind of police intervention after a major unidentified event. High visibility jackets abound, mingled with flashing lights. All in 1/87 (HO) scale.
The section in the container shows 'The Bridge'* which links two other larger pieces, currently touring the UK, exhibiting in car parks and similar.
I suppose the ADP (Aftermath Dislocation Principle) represents a possible future hidden in plain sight and glimpsed only by a few.
