PUBLIC INTERVENTION / PERFORMANCE
VARIOUS DATES & LOCATIONS IN SWANSEA CITY CENTRE, 2012
A socially engaging work performed in standard BT phone boxes in the city centre of Swansea, featuring Jason & Becky as members of AE101 Collective.
Lasting for the duration of one hour and by encouraging audience participation, they addressed issues surrounding our culture’s lack of community and constant battle with technology, resulting in poor communication.
Phone Box Disco aimed to bring people together physically, and to appreciate this physical connection
whilst questioning the idea of ‘progress’ in our modern world. As an intermediary usually used to connect one person to another over varying distances, the phonebox was transformed into a centre of physical - as opposed to technological - connections.
