About

Lazlo Moholy-Nagy claimed to have created 'Telephone Pictures' in the 1920s by transmitting voice instructions to a local enamel factory via telephone. Text-to-image AI models are the latest in a long list of technologies to raise questions about authorship and definitions of art.

For 25 GWei, you can call the BEEF factory to place an order. Proof-of-receipt will be livestreamed. Lead time may vary, with no guarantees. At operator's discretion, some prompts will be chosen to initiate a process to create something. The operator may employ subcontractors. Multiple draft designs may be presented for feedback through voting. On completion, the result and and documentation of its creation will be minted for sale, with right of first refusal offer to the original prompter.

Payphone helps me deal with my anxieties: reclaiming agency by putting a filter on my communication, and overcoming choice paralysis by interpreting the instructions of others, absolving myself of authorship.

Many artists I have spoken to feel overwhelmed by the 24/7 social media cycle and associated expectations. Constant bombardment of fragmented information through multiple communication channels, decision paralysis and burnout in the face of too many possibilities, race against technological advancements, competition for attention, performance expectation, brand alignment, fragmented time, and social comparisons.

I remember a time when it was much easier to put boundaries on one's attention, control one's own pace, maintain a focus independent of any audience or any awareness of what others were doing.

For brief periods, I will return to this condition, shutting off all communication channels. If you want to reach me, you can call me on the blockchain during predefined hours of availability.
