Description    CEL9 is an art project of the art circle "Artes" in the Dutch city Bussum. The project focuses on the concept of communication and illustrates this by using phone booths as the basis of the art forms. These phone booths were once part of the street view, but have now disappeared.
Each of the nine booths presents a theme that is related to communication. A tenth booth allows a passerby to select a theme, which activates the respective booth and plays one of many recorded messages through the phone handset.
Our involvement in the project is the electronics inside the phone booth, with the exception of the lighting.
