Right now in New York City you can do just that, thanks to Recalling 1993, Droga5’s incredible new campaign for the New Museum’s exhibition, “NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash, and More Star”.
Since the exhibition was created to be a snapshot of life in New York City at that time, Droga5 had the brilliant idea of integrating the campaign with the city’s history itself. The agency transformed over 5,000 pay phones on the streets of Manhattan into audio time capsules. By dialing the toll free number 1-855-FOR-1993, callers can hear one of over 150 recorded narratives from actual New Yorkers. The recordings are even geo-located by phone booth, so callers hear what was happening on the exact street they’re ringing in from.
