LabyrinthLabyrinth Art Project

To celebrate 150 years of the London Underground in 2013, Art on the Underground commissioned artist Mark Wallinger to create 270 unique 'Labyrinth' art installations to be displayed at all tube stations.

The 270 labyrinths are numbered - in numerical order of the route used for the 2009 world record time for visiting all stations in the fastest time possible. The holder of the 2009 record used a different route for their 2011 record time, and is not the same route that I used to obtain the current 2013 record.

This webpage is to be a list of where within a station they are all located (as some are on the platforms, some are in ticket halls, etc... ) so that you can go and find them all and try to solve them!

There is a Guardian News Article about it, plus a video they made about it.
The Art on the Underground website obviously has a whole bunch of stuff, including an interactive map.
Diamond Geezer wrote a comprehensive blog post about them.
A webpage ran by Edd & Soph have a really good categorised page listing all the ones that they've found.
There is a wallpaper slideshow here.

There's also a Labyrinth270 twitter account that attempted to track them all down, but then went inactive and they might have stopped.

On 6th March 2013, BBC2's "The Culture Show" aired a programme about it on TV, and on their website is a bonus clip where they discuss how they're numbered - e.g. the order being the route of the 2009 Tube World Record.
