The Payphone Memorial

The Payphone Memorial: The video clips.

Nine - soon to be dismantled - pay phones in Kyoto, Berlin and Linz have been converted into transitorial memorial sites for people to have their souvenir photo taken. That is commonly refered to as Collective Landmarking.

Below is a collection of movie clips that illustrate the lively Payphone Memorials realized in Japan in early summer 2007. This time the video cam didn't interfere with the action at all since it was all about camera work and framing a slice of the mundane... Roger Walch and Edgar Franz assisted me once more as indispensible camera men during several events to make this happen. When I find the time for more video editing I will add the clips from Berlin and Linz as well - just bear with me.
