We would like to read a specific word in some given number of languages. And represent the geographical heritage of that word through a lightning art piece. So for example if Jane says “kärlek” (the Swedish word for love), the colour of the Swedish flag will be reflected in the art piece.

The art piece would be places some place public where a lot of tourist/people from different cultures meet there’s not to much background noise. People would be approaching the piece and watch the instruction video next to it. Then connect through saying the given word on their language.

The technologies and material we would use in this project would be a microphone that not only can read amplitude, a server that we’ve found that can detect different words in different languages. For the lights we would need LEDs lamps/strips depending on the look of the art piece.
