"Portable Cellular Phone Booth"
by sabine7 / January 23, 2008
Nick Rodrigues is a Boston-based performance sculptor whose unusual work is themed on human interaction. Rodrigues incorporates these pieces into public settings and captures public reaction on video. The Porta Party is a booth the size of a standard telephone booth or portable toilet, but when placed on a street corner with party sounds emanating, it gets more attention than the standard services would. The diePod is a statement on how anyone born now will have some sort of electronic device on them until their death, and the Portable Cellular Phone Booth speaks of avoiding real time interactions. Shown here are stills from the videos on Rodrigues’ website.
