The red curlicue is not merely a typographical gesture to emphasise a part of a notion. Here it also expresses the experience of the artist when traveling under the ground from one stop to the next one. Lawrence Weiner says about this wall sign as work:
“One is often confronted by the classic logo of the underground and the transportation system. There has to be something that deals with the sheer wonder and sensual sense of in fact traveling under the ground (being in motion). What has been transcribed to the poster and the plaque is my sense of traveling under the ground”. Hence the interspace between ‘under’ and ‘ground’. KvG
