Telephone X is one of Nam June Paik's rare multiples. Resembling a cell phone, and made of translucent amber resin, Paik inserted a stiff wire-brush antenna with a blue fuzzy tip. Paik has also inserted a battery operation digital clock with liquid crystal display in the translucent resin body of the phone. Also embedded in the cell phone body and still visible are various electronic parts including a circuit board, audiotape, and dials, as well as sundry metal objects, push pins and a handwritten message reading "Jaqu Lang becomes the president of France I will come out of grave. Paik 2000" The set of imbedded elements selected by the artist is unique in each work.
