Phone Booths in urban cities can be quite boring at times, with little imagination in design to fire the imagination. After all they are just a public function utility with a basic need to make a call, but in Brazil they decided that it doesn’t have to be this way.
These Phone booths in the metropolitan region of São Paulo, Brazil, were given a make over that turned them into more than just obsolete stands.
The creative public art project titled, “Call Parade”, rejuvenated 100 telephone booths into works of art by 100 different artists with photographer Mariane Borgomani setting out to photograph as much as the phone booths as possible.
The booths themselves are painted on the outside as well as the inside and bring life and intrigue to these boring objects.
So next time you make a call, perhaps the phone booth will be part of the conversation.
