Telephone Booth Project, 2009-2010 (6 images)
“Telephone Booth Project” was a year-long public art project. When I imagined a public art sculpture standing in the middle of a town, I imagined something socially active, evolving, thinking, changing, and sometime failing–like the public itself.
A telephone booth, which I found in a junkyard in Chicago, was, after I restored and re-fabricated it, placed on a street corner in October 2009.
The booth functioned as a sound room, theater, kiosk, stage, gallery and shelter—a container where the public could experience art one-on-one.
Once the project was conceived and the booth was erected, I invited other artists to mount their work.
