The Public Message Box was installed on Bond Street in London as part of a series of interactive street art installations that encourage public participation, and engage them actively in the reclamation of public space. The Public Message Box aimed to provide a playful experience for everyday people within restricted environments where it was denied before. This unique installation, a Public Message Box reading Receive a message from a stranger, leave a message for a stranger, consisted of a wooden box with a door. When the door is opened a light sensor activated sound recording module plays a message that has been previously recorded by the last person who visited the installation. On opening the box the viewer will find instructions on how to leave a message themselves which will be played to the next person who opens the box. For documentation, a hidden camera was also installed inside in the message box to capture the response from the public.
