Long Distance has been designed for the BT Artbox exhibition, which sees over 80 British phone boxes transformed by artists and designers for public exhibition across London. Both pieces were auctioned at the National Portrait Gallery by Sotheby's to raise funds for Childline.
Inspired by the telephone as a worldwide connector, Long Distance playfully celebrates the incredible reach this technology provides. Extending far beyond the well-crafted confines of the iconic British phone box, today's technology continues to push the boundaries through visual media and video calling where distant worlds are seemingly transported into our own.
