ttc lost found

What's the worst thing you've lost on the TTC?

The creature that steals my socks out of the laundry has a cousin. It lives in the tunnels of the TTC, and it wants my gloves and mittens (but only one at a time). When a single matched pair survives a whole winter, I basically throw a party. If you're like me, and you've sacrificed countless personal treasures (keys, priceless artworks, true love, your sanity) to our city's transit system, a new project wants to make beautiful public art out of your sob story.

The Things We Lose is a new video project by Labspace Studio, the same folks that recently showed us the historic path of the Don River through public art. They're currently accepting submissions for stories and photos on your lost items; if your story's chosen, they'll film a segment for the project, and it'll be screened in subway stations in October.
