Title: Tourists and Artists

Keywords: social mix, vision, co-existence

Description: This collage congregates glimpses of tourists holding rolling luggage near King's Cross & Pancras Station, which entertains trains from and to all over Europe. The station is bustling with European tourists, coming either for vacation or for work, wearing suits or travel wear, passing through luxury shops and restaurants in and out the station. However, not so far away from this site stands the University of Arts London. The work of one of the art students for an exhibition is also collaged at the three corners of this image. According to Professor Bishop, many firms that sit in the area, like the headquarter of Google, actually chose the site because of its location to the station and the art school. The college attempts to show this mix of various demography of the site, of tourists, artists, and businessmen, who all contribute to the vibrancy of the area.
