The Walkie Talkies by Michelle Baharier
A series of 10 digital collages from the 8 June via Disability Arts Online.
“Hold tight!” if you can remember that saying, remember the conductors? They used to shout just before the bus moved, lots of people would be holding on, swaying to and fro.
The Walkie-Talkies is an artwork by socially engaged artist Michelle Baharier, working with a number of community groups and based on a poem by David Morris called the Route master race. David was a disabled wheelchair user and unable to use the bus, therefore excluded from London life. The works explore inclusion on public transport, this experience of the route master, the double-decker bus and David’s poem.
