The Telephone Booth is a concept for an installation in a potential events space hosting the Sex Talk brand. It is a 4ft tall box made from foam core, cardboard and plaster cement, that acts as a maquette for a life size telephone booth installation.

The sex talk brand was born out of frustration for the lack of sex education in Malaysia (where I originally grew up). Along with Alia Ghazlan, a sociology major at Sussex university (UK) we decided to create a platform for young people to get involved in a conversation about sex using art as the basis of this platform. The goal was to encourage other artists, writers and creatives get involved with this collaborative project too.
One of the ideas we had was to throw events in London with live music and art and put the profits of the event towards an organization/charity that worked towards similar goals. This is where the idea of the Phone booth came from. I had the idea to create a full scale phone booth and project graphic content on it as a center piece for the event.
Together with Emily Pace, we designed and created this installation.
