Via her Instagram account, @missunderground, she shows the tube as a system of empty mazes, showcasing the symmetry and lighting of the winding corridors and staircases.“Every station on the underground has a different look and feel. If you take a few seconds to look around at the details in any one of the stations you see a different personality,” she says. “Some stations feel like you are in a spaceship while others have colourful tiles.”
