One Last Call: Anna Madeleine in collaboration with Dr. Renee Beale

brokenphone1_web.jpg

One Last Call  is a participatory artwork made in collaboration with Dr. Renee Beale that considers the environmental impact of manufacturing mobile phones, and imagines more sustainable ways to communicate.

Your mobile phone might be broken, but it can still make One Last Call. Will your call be for environmental change? A message for those yet to be born? Or one last call to a loved one you can’t speak to anymore?

Mobile phones are made of several rare earth elements that are becoming scarce. Mining these materials is extremely harmful to the environment and threatens the habitats of some of the world's most endangered species. One Last Call challenges the community to take action by recycling these materials while also having their voice heard.

Recycle your old mobile phone, saving rare earth metals and the environment, and in return use our phone booth to contribute your message to an online digital archive. 

One Last Call was installed at the Kathleen Syme Community Centre and Library from April 11 – May 19, 2017 as part of CLIMARTE’s ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017 a festival of exhibitions and events harnessing the creative power of the arts to inform, engage and inspire action on climate change.

Check Instagram or Twitter to stay up to date with where the phone booth will be installed next.

Supported by the Carlton Connect Initiative, the University of Melbourne.
