Wooden K2 Telephone Kiosk, Burlington House entranceway, Piccadilly W1J 0BD
19th September 2014 - 3rd May 2015.
The first red telephone kiosk designed in 1924 by renowned architect Giles Gilbert Scott is the site for four new sound works commissioned by Measure, a non-for-profit arts organisation. The historic structure installed under the entranceway to Burlington House, Piccadilly was the only wooden prototype made of this iconic design.
Marking the 90th anniversary, Measure will present a programme of sonic compositions by UK-based artists to be listened to through the telephone handset. Presented consecutively artists Holly Pester, Aura Satz, Dan Scott and Lawrence Abu Hamdan will each probe the cultural role of the public telephone, its technological design and its relevance as a site for solitary conversation within a bustling central London setting.
