Los Angeles Modern Auctions (LAMA)

Frank O. Gehry and Sophie Calle, friends of nearly 25 years, collaborated in 2006 to design Le Téléphone, a large sculpture which was installed as a work of public art in Paris until 2012. The flower-shaped structure was a functioning telephone booth, created with the sole intention of receiving calls from Sophie Calle. From her home just outside of Paris, Calle would call Le Téléphone at random times to converse with whomever happened to be walking by. The calls ranged from 8 seconds to 4 hours.
