Funky Phone Art

Even though the use of public phones has diminished since the rise of the mobile, they still have their place in the public realm - albeit a place marred with tagging, smashed glass and the stench of urine.  But not so in Sao Paulo;  here, the artists have taken over and decorated the phone booths of the city 'however they see fit'.

There's a range of 100 funky designs (which can all be seen here) and you can vote on your favourites.

This demonstrates a clever example of encouraging interactive art in the public realm that also makes phone booths just a bit more pleasant.
