"Public Telephone" is an interactive sound installation which allows people leave audio messages in designated locations throughout the city of Gothenburg using rotary telephones. Telephones throughout the city are marked with a 3-digit code. Dial the code to access each message or record your own message by dialing "1" and wait for the prompt from the "operator". Dial 1 again when you have finished recording.
Dwelling in the primitive tradition of the oral resonant world of sound, Public Telephone provides a platform for the public orator, the preacher, the story teller, the instigator, the musician or the menacer. By leaving messages, users participate in a public sound mosaic. Listening to messages may help us navigate through the city as expressed in sound
