An Aquarium Phone Booth

An Aquarium Phone Booth. If you think that it’s the most absurd thing you have heard of, then let me correct you by saying that it’s the most creative thing one can do. With no one actually going to a telephone booth to make a call these days, if their superfluous nature can actually be transformed into something artistic and aesthetical, nothing like it.
France hosts Lyon Light Festival, which always holds a great importance for artists throughout the country and with an inspiration to do something distinctive and exceptional, Benedetto Bufalino and Benoit Deseille, the artists behind this extraordinary piece of art, came up with the idea of making an Aquarium Phone Booth. They have transformed an unexploited aged school booth into an aquarium, which not only holds a great aesthetical value to the place at large but also lends a surreal look to the environment. Definitely a beauty that has to be seen to understand its appeal!!!
This Aquarium Phone Booth is installed in the street and is an appealing and motivating thing to look upon. A fraction of recycled art, Aquarium Phone Booth encourages for many other similar creations that promise some substance. If we think upon it, there are so many things around us that are not being used. If make something creative out of them, surely it would serve the society on the whole.
The only minus point with an Aquarium Phone Booth would always be that the city would be required to provide this booth with extra care. The beautiful fishes of lustrous and vibrant colours inside would be required to be feeded in the right course of time, which could be a bit difficult to handle for the city workers with the city’s everyday jobs.
There is always something special and healing about an aquarium, so would be with an Aquarium Phone Booth as well. For a city busy in itself, an Aquarium Phone Booth would be a we3lcome change and just imagine how cool!
