R. I. P. phonebox
RIP as an acronym echoes that of a defunct Italian public phone company, SIP. The miniature phone box, made by vinyl extrusion, with vinyl paint and photographic prints, is the replica of a large installation that was moved to phone booth locations around the city of Milan. The miniature phone box houses a map, photographs, and an overview of the work. "This piece documents installations of the project R.I.P. that happened in Milan, Italy in 2016-2017. It's a reflection about what it means to disappear in plain, public sight, a civic exercise in curiosity."--From artist's statement.
