In a time where cell phones and smart phones dominate, the traditional pay phone is nearly extinct. When you do cross paths with this endangered species, it’s often in a horrible state of disrepair.
California artist Lorna Watt, a.k.a. Knits for Life, comments on the fate of the pay phone in this yarn bomb. Completed in February 2013, her installation breathes new life into a tired remnant. You can read more about it here.
On another note, Lorna’s also looking for people to help her with the next San Mateo yarn bomb. Additional details available here.
