Recalling 1993

A project by Experimental Jetset & others to connect present day NYC to the NYC of twenty years ago (yeah '93 was 2 decades ago) through the telephones. Utilizing the existing pay phones as an avenue into the past is genius. I also love the idea of hearing a recording through the crackled sound of a handset.

I hope my friends in NYC get a chance to try a few of these out. For those of us outside NYC, follow the link to the Recalling 1993 site and listen to a few recordings. Much like the Silent History project, I am super intrigued by this concept of geographic-exclusive story telling. We should always be aware: stories don't just happen in time, they happen in a place; and that place is a character in the story too.
