Incoming Call

Incoming Call is a public intervention in which payphones along 14th Street ring when a tweet about 14th Street is made. Payphones will ring as they used to do many years ago, before regulations to disable incoming calls were made in the 90s. As new technologies have developed, and the use of payphones declined, Incoming Call creates a link between the virtual and the physical, the old and the new, as a reflection on transformations in the public landscape.
