Telephone Booths in Popular Culture

This app, designed for the iPad, creates a new reading experience using HTML5. “Telephone Booths in Popular Culture” creates a timeline of pop culture references, and highlights tropes associated with telephone booths from the 1960s to today. It combines a synopsis of the scene with a video clip to create an engaging interactive experience. The aesthetic merges the modern tiling function with a retro, colour-blocking feel. This project tells the story of the telephone booth, its narrative potential, and how its disappearance from the streets will leave a hole in American culture.
