‘Canopy’ is a display system in the ceiling of a metro train that gives commuters a connection to life above ground. As our cities grow, the construction and use of underground railways becomes routine. However, the fastest way to cross the city detaches you from the landmarks and sensations that your unconscious uses to navigate through space and time.

A worm’s eye view of passing landmarks above you and a generated sky put you back in contact with real life on the surface. Unobtrusive, curated advertisements about events and promotions along your route break the monotony of the daily grind into work.
