The artist has taken and old fashioned phone booth and repurposed it as a way for the users to get a bit of poetry.
It was fitted with the old style "dial" telephone. The way it's supposed to work is there is a menu of numbered poems that one might pick to listen to and when you dial the number, the poem is recited through the hand set.
I loved the idea, I just wish I had gotten an opportunity to listen to one of the poems.
Telepoem! It's a clever idea and I sure hope they got it working so people can enjoy it. I didn't realize when I drove out to Mesa that a whole festival of art was going on there. So there was plenty for me to see and enjoy while I waited around. I'll show you more tomorrow.
