The sculpture is designed to be easy to approach without
being too cute. When children respond to it as well as
adults, it is a good indication of good design. One
four-year-old hugged it about fifty times while his mother and
baby sister talked with a caller through it during the first
day of the installation.
Another four-year-old was told about the project and called
through from home several times. He also insisted on coming to
the site itself to see the AgoraPhone sculpture and talk with
people from this end of the sculpture. Here he is having a
chat through AgoraPhone.
