The TRANSFORMATION BOOTH is a cocoon-like structure going up at a booth at Spadina Crescent Circle in Toronto on May 21st and will stay until weather permits. It will urge pedestrians to enter and reflect on past, current and projected civil, social and personal transitions, and ultimately the concept of change itself. Created and watched over
by TIMEANDDESIRE, they have this to say about the installation:

While the gradual disappearance of telephone booths throughout a city reflect the growing utilization of cell-phones, it also represents the loss of a communally shared good, one which fostered a sense of togetherness. As the TRANSFORMATION BOOTH suggests, that which appears lost with the telephone booth does not need to be. Rather, such qualities can take on new forms, configurations and functions within the ever-shifting urban landscape.
