A Penny for your thoughts

finished-book

 

In exchange for a penny artwork, artist Dawn Cole invites you to write a story inside a 1930s reproduced blank telephone book telling us an early encounter with a red telephone box or a telephone.

A Penny For Your Thoughts is part of an ongoing art intervention in a grade II listed K2 telephone box at Bedford Row, Bloomsbury, London, WC1R 4EB, exploring notions of innovation.   We wish to collect anecdotes from people of all ages and from all places about their experience, whether happy or sad, funny or painful.

For decades the telephone box was central to many communities.  As communication technology has evolved away from sharing devices towards personal ownership we ask whether this is changing, or has changed society?

Alternatively you can post your story directly to the dedicated Facebook page
