Phone Booth Project

Revealing the distinctive and compelling nature of Martu communication across the vast Western Desert, The Phone Booth Project features a Pilbara phone booth, large-scale video projections and multi-lingual dialogues.

Martu filmmaker Curtis Taylor and established Melbourne artist Lily Hibberd have worked collaboratively with two Martu communities, gathering candid and humorous accounts of daily life and extraordinary stories of adaptation to western technology in the use of phone booths in remote desert communities.
