One Last Call

Your mobile phone may be broken, but it can still make One Last Call. A participatory artwork by Anna Madeleine in collaboration with Dr Renee Beale.


Dates: 12 April-14 May (Opening event 22 April, 2pm-4pm)

Your mobile phone might be broken, but it can still make One Last Call.

Will your call be for environmental change? A message for those yet to be born? Or one last call to a loved one you can’t speak to anymore?

Recycle your old mobile phone, saving rare earth metals and the environment, and in return use our phone booth to record your message to an online digital archive.

One Last Call is a participatory artwork that considers the environmental impact of manufacturing mobile phones, and a provocation to invent more sustainable ways to communicate.
