But those articles convinced me, and staying on a train going all the way around is pointless and stupid anyway.
So yeah, if it'll improve service then break the circle, by all means. Turn it into a lasso shape or T-Cup shape or whatever. Sounds like those solutions would be more or less transparent to anyone who didn't intend to go all the way around the loop anyway.

I haven't been to see the exhibition, but instinctively it didn't seem like they would be able to make her work meaningful in the Hayward setting and tradition of display.
As for her photos, I've never found them to be that special, but that's the curse of "art photography" most of the time in at least the last 20 years. (20 years ago is when I really became a photographer and so started to really pay attention to the art photo scene.) There's just way too much tolerance of banal, run-of-the mill and derivative work...
However, how that plays out in practical terms, I don't know - but I think there are complications (as usual) in talking about wealth below a certain threshold, due to illiquidity.
I'm sure Australia is only at the top of that list due to the property boom. Its don pretty well at redistribution, but still. Young / old demographics will make a mess of it in twenty years.

In the meantime, most of the young are looking at a life where they don't get on the property ladder, so if property is the main driver of the lower wealth inequality it looks to be in the process of reversing itself.
(The thought occurs that the positive situation is partly a result of Thatcher's "right to buy" - but the downside is that it's not proving to be a sustainable solution, it was a one off redistribution that denuded the state of leverage in the housing market and created an even worse situation down the road...)
I feel the same way whenever people start talking about "authentic" [INSERT ETHNICITY/NATIONALITY/REGION HERE] food. Of course, I could just be a stereotypically ugly American but I get annoyed with typically highly privileged/educated Stuff White People Like white people say "well you know, what you call Mexican (or Chinese, or Japanese) food isn't really authentic". Do I give a crap? I just want a tasty meal, not an ethnology lecture. I know that these tacos would be made corn tortillas instead of flour and with beans and cactus instead of steak and cheese in Mexico, but I like flour tortillas and steak and cheese (too damn much, unfortunately). I do understand that when people who are genuinely fans of a given cuisine that is native to a particular region have their preferences for having it made a certain way, it's less wordy to say "authentic" than "made in the style I happen to enjoy", but it gets preachy at times.
Or maybe I just like to bitch, I don't know.
but, yeah, I mean, carne al pastor isn't "authentic", it's a "fusion" cuisine inspired by Lebanese immigrants to Mexico (so is this authentic Lebanese?!). to me, that means two things:
