Beginning with the city of Lyon’s 2007 Festival of Lights, French artist Benedetto Bufalino and lighting and designer Benoit Deseille have been collaborating on playful installations for which phone booths, an increasingly uncommon sight in the urban landscape, are beautifully repurposed as Phone Booth Aquariums complete with live fish swimming within.
The duo’s next Phone Booth Aquarium will be installed at the upcoming Lumiere Festival in Durham, UK from November 14th to November 17th, 2013.
