Mike Salisbury

Phone Booth

Location: SW corner of Jefferson Ave. and E. St. Louis St.

Mike Salisbury uses abandoned payphones as a metaphor for connection and disconnection. These urban street sculptures invite interaction and ultimately become a living, evolving reflection of our culture in a time of change.

“The juxtaposition of an outdated urban artifact surrounding the life force of a tree leaves the viewer to contemplate – is nature protected, or imprisoned? Is this a triumph for the environment, or a rite for our technology? Playful nostalgia or a worrisome premonition?” – Mike Salisbury
