In 1948, a telephone booth is set up in the Mojave Desert for the use of local miners. Decades later, the mining industry abandons the area, leaving behind this single phone booth as the only trace of human life in the desert landscape.
Cabine/Trace is a participative installation that prompts reflection on the changing status of objects that build our daily life and memories. Present everywhere, but gradually becoming invisible, phone booths have dissolved into our landscape. What, then, is the value of the conversations that took place in them, the graffiti scrawled onto them or the shelter they provided? And what is the meaning of these infrastructural traces that will outlive us?
