  • I cannot put my finger on the reason, but these call-box conversions leave me cold. Not this one in particular, but the whole idea of inserting little art pieces in them. It’s not that I think think they should be pulled out, but I there’s something about the connection between outmoded communication system and art display site that doesn’t resonate with me. I find the art display does nothing to illuminate the original use of the box. and the art itself is not often anything I find very interesting. (That does apply to the particular piece in the post.)

    I can see the value of retaining objects from the past, but in the case of the call boxes I think I would appreciate them more in the original state. They are quite beautiful objects in thier own right, without the addition of art or other things.
