Accessorizing a Conceptual Bus Shelter
Yesterday as I was sketching ideas for my Seeking Shelter bus stop installation I got an email about a great Kickstarter project, Can Over IP Technology. This is a tin can string phone that hooks up to a cell phone or laptop. I quickly sketched two of them into my design (see detail of sketch below.) I would love to have a few of these in the Seeking Shelter bus stop installation. These tin can phones invite playfulness and imagination. They fit well with the materials I am using: cardboard tubes, window screen netting and elementary student pattern designs.
Who can be grumpy talking on a tin can string phone?
