Fishtank Friday: Phone Booth

Phone Booth Fishtank

By Evan Ackerman

If you need to call Batman, you use one of these. If you need to call Aquaman, I guess you’ll have to travel to Lyon, France, and find some way to get into this phone booth, which is full of fish. It was designed by Benedetto Bufalino as part of the Lyon Light Festival, and is located right about here. The designers describe it thusly:

“With the advent of the mobile telephone, telephone booths lie unused. We rediscover this glass cage transformed into an aquarium, full of exotically coloured fish; an invitation to escape and travel.”

Oh, and FYI, if you do need to contact Aquaman, apparently the way to do it is by putting a message in a bottle and chucking it into the ocean in the hopes that some sort of crab-thing will pick it up and deliver it to his secret lair inside an ancient Atlantean temple.
