Aquarium phone booth

Street encounter in Lyon: a phone booth turned into an aquarium (by Benoit Deseille and Benedetto Bufalino), as part of the Lyon Light Festival: phone booth aquarium

As the designers express it:

"With the advent of the mobile telephone, telephone booths lie unused. We rediscover this glass cage transformed into an aquarium, full of exotically coloured fish; an invitation to escape and travel."

Why do I blog this? an interesting way to explore how artifacts from the 20th century can be turned into other sorts of objects in the city of the near future.
