Marking a shift in the functioning of private and public space, after existing as a sidewalk staple for over a century, the Finnish public phone booth is now extinct. The artist employs her camera phone to document the passing.
Hope Tucker was born in Memphis in 1974 and began The Obituary Project in 2000. The Obituary Project is a compendium of 21st century salvage ethnography that transforms a quotidian form of narrative. Hope Tucker reframes the passing of sites, people, communities, rituals, cultural markers, and ways of being. Her films have been shown at many international festivals.
