The "Telephone Tree" is an environmental art installation gone bad.
When Barry Robinson, 65, found three iconic red telephone booths in a British dump, he decided to take them home and recycle them for an eco art project. He fastened all three phone booths, in their entirety, to a three-pronged 20 foot metal girder, creating a bright red, tree-like structure complete with patriotic flags.
He was heralded for his green initiative... until it became a public eyesore when he plunked it on a field in Hurley, Warwickshire.
