‘On A Higher Plane’ – WC1/SW15
Passing a series of glossy information boards on Endsleigh Place, explaining the history and remit of the University of London. One section refers to Jeremy Bentham as an ‘auto-icon’. Further west an A-board announces a show at the Half Moon in Putney. John Otway, proclaimed as a ‘cult icon’. Not ironic, just iconic.
