Do you remember those old phones? At home we had one and that was in the hall, so that everyone could hear what you said. How often I have not spoken in veiled language with my interlocutor. At night, when everyone was in bed, I took the phone to my room and tried to “close” the door with a rope so tense that it could break anytime.
Now these stories seem incredible, but then it was great to talk to someone at a distance.
This Art Journal handles about this form of communication. With the phone via a cable or waves, we can exchange messages with so many different people. Do you remember those phones?
