The underground station „Altes Landgut“ is a station of the U1 line in the 10th district of Vienna. The opening took place on September 2, 2017. It is part of the extension of the U1 from Reumannplatz to Oberlaa.
On the distribution floor of the station, the walls of the escalator system were decorated with the large-format mural Face Surveillance Snails by the Swiss computer artist Yves Netzhammer. The total of 63 stylized portraits are a playful homage to the diversity of people and to the ubiquitous surveillance through facial recognition. They are humorous depictions with many lovely details. The drawings were applied to the metal plates using foil template technology and a special interference paint (a so-called flip-flop effect paint). The flip-flop finish causes the colors to be perceived differently from different perspectives; the drawings therefore appear to change as the escalator passes by.
