Public Art: What Is Public? What Is Private?

In the age of Twitter, social networks, YouTube,

surveillance and text messaging,

we are constantly transmitting, receiving and exchanging

our status at great distance with speed.

We are readily conditioned to view, and be viewed by,

thousands of anonymous others.

We have several hundred “faces” of

so-called friends on our desktop.


This telephone booth

you are standing in

measures 32”x32”x80”.

It is designed for a single human body.

It is place-bound on a street corner.

It is not connected to

the Internet nor a phone-line.

What you experience here

is one-on-one.
