Lovers’ Telephone was devised in collaboration with Brixton Community Base & Sixteen Feet Productions as part of Brixton Design Trail 2017.
The Lovers’ telephone is a multi-sensory installation occupying the stairway of Brixton Community Base. Visitors will be encouraged to engage by listening and sharing oral histories of Brixton. The tubular cloud was installed in the stairway creating opportunities to engage with the recordings in a spatial and collective way. Some will house looped audio recordings featuring accounts of Brixtonian’s from the Windrush Generation (part of the ‘Vintage Voices’ project by Sixteenfeet Productions), and others encouraged you to tell your own story of Brixton.
