Last Call

In the project “Last Call” the Art Cell is transformed into a place where last calls can be made. Dialing from this Phone box requires planning as it is only open on Fridays 7:00 – 8:00 pm, an intentionally narrow time window.
 While the outside of the booth is a reverent black, within awaits the visitors a white, bright, and intimate atmosphere. “Facebook will miss you” proclaims a sign, and a mobile phone with which one communicates with professional invites the visitor to cast away and let loose their worries, fear, and whatever else in the discussion. What exactly a last call can mean if left up to the user.

“Last Call” was the second winner of a competition by the Transarts class at the University of Applied Arts Vienna under the guidance of Roman Pfeffer in collaboration with Christine Baumann, curator of the Art Cell.
