P.H.O.N.E: Public History Oral Network Experiment

"Part public service, part political action, part therapeutic and part public art, the P.H.O.N.E Boot is a strategy to draw attention to basic communication technology. A physical structure mimicking a traditional phone booth, it provides a sheltered, semi-private, semi-public space with a free local phone line and a direct line to an answering machine."
The zine publishes written guest book entries answering the question "Are pay phones important? Why?" as well as the transcribed messages left on machines.
