New York City was a very different place twenty years ago. Recalling 1993 surfaces memories of early-nineties New York City by turning every Manhattan pay phone into an audio time capsule. The campaign lets anyone dial 1-(855)-FOR-1993 from a pay phone to listen to a memory specific to the local area. There's a map that locates all of Manhattan's pay phones over on the project website, and a select few recordings are also available online. Recalling 1993 was created by Manhattan-based marketing firm Droga5 in collaboration with the New Museum to promote NYC 1993: Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star, a new exhibition that showcases art made in New York City over the course of the year.
