New York public phone bookcase: DUB 002


Even as they are rendered obsolete by the ubiquity of smartphones, I’m interested in pay phones because they are both anachronistic and quotidian. Relics, they’re dead technology perched on the edge of obsolescence, a skeuomorph hearkening back to a lost shared public space we might no longer have any use for... But they can also be a place of opportunity, something to reprogram and somewhere to come together and share a good book with your neighbors.
