WTPh? (What the Phonics) is an interactive installation. Street names in Denmark are quite challenging for foreigners to pronounce, so we did a little intervention in the touristic areas of Copenhagen.

We recorded a Dane pronouncing the street names then split up each syllable; lights are placed above the matching syllable so that in real-time, you can see which part of the word is being spoken. When participants lift the speaker off the wall, it starts playing. We used Max/MSP and Arduino to build the installation.
