Jeanne Randolph is the author of five books on contemporary Canadian arts and two books on contemporary mass culture. Her many publications for journals and contributions to books reflect a fascination with art’s context: technology, ethics, advertising, spectator sports and mass entertainment.
Deep Bay Residency Project
Residency dates: September 26 to October 9
Only thirty telephone booths still exist in Manitoba. Travelling with her IPhone Jeanne has taken photographs of every one of them. She was compelled to find and to document every one that remains, knowing that these modernist structures could easily be forgotten, in spite of their significance in comics, film and personal lives. Jeanne has taken some five hundred photos of the phone booths. While at the Deep Bay cabin she will choose the seventy-five most evocative photos in preparation for a public exhibition.
