Visual Anthropology
18 November 2006 | by acumenschSee all my reviews

Kaarine Cleverly Roberto is a recent graduate of a program called Visual Anthropology. This film was part of her thesis project, which explored the Mojave Phone Booth Phenomenon as an anthropological metaphor of the Information Age.

The film centers around a phone booth, in fact, that was placed in the Mojave Desert some time ago for miners (in case they were stranded.) THe miners are gone, and intrepid tourists travel from all over the world to visit California's phone in the middle of nowhere. How does a phone ever become a huge tourist attraction? I looked up the phone number for the Mojave Phone Booth, but too bad it's no longer in service.
