Seeing Voices: Inside BT Archives explored the archives that lay behind British Telecommunication's vault-like door in High Holborn, London. The 7 projects on display suggest that a telephone is more than an everyday object that connects us; the icon represents a vast social history of exchange.

By unraveling histories through archival material, students of M.A. Design Writing Criticism at the London College of Communication captured historical moments from the boxes of BT. These snippets presented everyday stories where the meaning and impact of telephony is not only visible, but also enchanting.

The exhibition was designed and co-curated by students of M.A. Design Writing Criticism. It received a Notable Mention in Design Education Initiatives category by the Core 77 Design Awards.
