Simon Patterson: High Noon

Catalogue for a retrospective of artist Simon Patterson's work.
In mixing and transposing different classification systems and naming conventions his work pokes fun at the supposed authority of information graphics. His most popular piece The Great Bear recreates the London tube map swapping station stops for themed list of peoples names - footballers, philosophers, explorers, thus creating a weird parallel reality.
