String Can Public Phone

Marc Schiller of Wooster Collective, one of my favorite street art blogs, posted this photo of a pay phone on the streets of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Now that's vandalism at its best, folks! Link

"Vandalism" is increasingly being used to describe interventionist art such as this - and as such the line between the two is being blurred, in favour of art; the more that efforts like this are described as vandalism, the less that future ones will be seen as *destructive* - and all will gain greater acceptance as a result.

Why do you assume it was vandalism? The phone companies have been removing payphones like crazy over the last few years. This is how false information gets started going around... see your commenter says the phone company will fix it, so apparently is taking you at your word that it was vandalism. Journalists have an obligation to the truth...

Reminds me of my childhood where we would pretend we were fighting aliens in the playground and use a string and cups as our HQ intercoms. Ah, good times. I think this is a great idea and it will sure as heck make the telephone company fix it.
