What a delight this must be to happen upon while strolling! Artists Benoit Deseille and Benedetto Bufalino's installation Urban Escape transforms a phone booth into a street aquarium as part of the Lyon Light Festival in France. A statement from the artists: “With the advent of the mobile telephone, telephone booths lie unused. We rediscover this glass cage transformed into an aquarium, full of exotically coloured fish; an invitation to escape and travel.” Fantastic re-imagining of materials and presentation of urban street art.
