Bus.Tops – a city wide canvas for sharing the art of our streets, our communities, our London, our experience.
Bus.Tops provides the canvas that allows London to tell its stories. These can be small, intimate stories of a neighbourhood or citywide adventures that draw us into a London we never imagined; or simply moments of beauty, wonder, questioning, critique, comment and exploration. These stories unfold on a canvas made up of networked panels of programmable LEDs situated on the roofs of bus stops across London.
As well as the canvas, Bus.Tops provides the tools and platform from which both publicly recognised artists and the public we recognise as artists are empowered to create a truly public art experience. Bus.Tops will work with established artists to create a “curated” collection of works distributed across the bus.tops canvas. These will be celebrated as being at the vanguard of artistic innovation and exploration. However these works will also be the foundation from which a new generation of authors and artists will be inspired create their first piece of public art.
The potential of Bus.Tops is only limited by the imagination of 8 million Londoners.
