Sweater #38


This location is hilarious as the public pay phone is a dying breed.  The immediate thought that came to mind was how the public phones were first dismantled in often the most struggling parts of town where many people don’t have access to any form of telecommunication.  In addition, the phone is located in a spot where there is so much ambient noise that it is difficult to hear the person on the other end of the line.  If I recall accurately, I have made several calls from this specific phone, so to place a sweater there just seemed too logical as it symbolizes interdependency upon each other and on our creations. In other parts of the country, these phones often highlight the ability to make affordable international calls as well which is something not many of our cell phones could dependably execute.
