Star 69

Telephone is scheduled to close today.

The show was an experiment in deregulation, like when the courts took Ma Bell down.

This blog, for whatever its worth, wasn't impressed with the majority of the works in the show... but so what? the conceptual idea was of more interest. Any single great work in the show would be extra, like a *69 feature from a Baby Bell compared with more competition and lower rates.

Contemporary parallel: ATT / T-Mobile proposed merger.

Contemporary parallel: Mat Gleason's show.

Festival style spectacle: Adam's Telephone To Telephone Tweets.

All world tweets: About telephones.

Next TAM curatorial concept cum pragmatic crowdsource: Opening in mid-September.
