“In war as in peace we will maintain communications”

The boys of Omni-Zona Franca have found the solution to the problem of the plucked handsets, to the voice that says “the number cannot be reached due to overflow in the lines” and the appetite of the phone that swallows our coins without compassion.

If what we want is a phone, here we have it: painted, in two dimensions, unreachable and exasperating as the candy behind a glass window.  Like those cavern graffiti, where the outline of the deer conjures up the other one grazing in the meadows, these phones put us nearer to what we are missing.  Painting them is a way to tame them, to make them ours, to finally catch and “tame the wild horse of technology.”
