Architect John Locke is doing to the phone booths of New York what every self-respecting bookworm has silently wished for since cell phones became ubiquitous and books became redundant. Almost! As part of his Department of Urban Betterment project, he has been converting normally grimy, grotty phonebooths in the city into useful resources for the bookish subway trawling population.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
