The London Is Changing project is the work of Dr Rebecca Ross, senior lecturer and course leader at Central Saint Martins, in collaboration with the billboard firm Outdoor Plus.
Having invited people who are moving to or away from London to send her their thoughts about the experience, Ross has selected quotes to post on digital billboards in central London. They mix optimism, resignation and crossness, but together there’s no denying that they convey a lot of sadness.
It seemed timely for us, preparing for our talk about London at the House of St Barnabas this week. “Is Money Ruining London” is the title we chose: going by Rebecca Ross’ project, the answer is “yup”.
