Intimacy Calling

To tackle the problem of feeling lonely, I want to place telephone booths around the city. Both in public and in different musuems around the city.

People can enter these phonebooths and listen to a mood setter, a voice that tells different stories of people telling what intimacy means to them. After this, a question is asked about the last time they engaged in something intimate. When another booth answers, people engage in a meaningful conversation about what intimacy means to them, resulting in a personal moment of contact.

The interaction should feel like suddenly seeing and appreciating a rainbow, which is Disruptive, Engaging, Non-committal, and Pleasant.
