Drunk dialing will never be the same after this Saturday, August 2nd, when the Telemegaphone Dale, a seven-meter tall loudspeaker sculpture on top of the Bergskletten mountain in Western Norway opens its...errrr...receiver? Created by Unsworn Industries (Magnus Torstensson and Erik Sandelin) the interactive piece is the "pre-project" of Parafunctional Payphones--a new series of self-initiated public, telephonic art installations and services. By dialing the Telemegaphone's phone number, your voice will ring out across the fjord, the valley and the village of Dale. A bright light at the top of the pole will be lit as your call will goes through, projecting your voice across the valley.
Wanna' try? On Aug 2nd, go here for the phone number. (This'll work day & night until September 6, 2008).
Check out a sweet little sketch of it all after the jump...
