You're walking along the Playa, and there, exactly where it makes no sense for it to be, as a standard looking phone kiosk. No, you can't talk to God, but if you pick it up, you get dial tone, and if you dial it connects you with anybody in the world.
We hope you enjoy the booth, which will start its life at 4:44 and Mercury but will move a couple of times. However, it also has a phone number 213 634 1441 (during the event only, please,) which outsiders can call and it will ring. Whether anybody will be there to answer depends on who is walking by. Whether they will do what your want or take a message depends on them. They might take it to the Black Rock Post office for you for a suitable non-monetary bribe.
Here's a page about using the booth
and a page about how it was built
After the event the pages will be updated with photos of the coolest-costumed people using the phone.
Please don't call the booth before Monday. During the event if the phone is in use expect voice mail. People may or may not check it, but only leave it if you have a real message you need to get to somebody.
Please also enjoy our other installations: The giant panoramic photo wall, the map of the Vault of Heaven, the Free Speech Zone, the Blog Wall and the Save-the-Man Protest.
See you out on the Playa. Phone your mother. She thinks you don't call enough.
