In a nutshell, Dial-A-Llama is a humorous take on technology designed to utilize art to create a laugh or two and hopefully create a little happiness along the way.
Dial-A-Llama is a relational art installation where a participant engages in a conversation with the Dial-A-Llama bot from a phone booth positioned near a vintage horse trailer.
After the conversation, viewers experience the feeling of viewing a third dimension when a holographic illusion of a llama appears in the trailer in the form of a simulated teleportation.
Others are able to text the Dial-A-Llama at 504.226.7524 and engage the Dial-A-Llama bot in conversation. Visitors can also chat with the Dial-A-Llama bot located on the bottom right corner of this website.

The DALAI Lama
- The purpose of our lives is to be happy.
- Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.
If you want others to be happy, practice compassion. If you want to be happy, practice compassion.
- Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
- My religion is very simple. My religion is kindness.
- Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck.
- Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible.
All of the above are quotes of the Dalai Lama.
