What the Phonics? Helps Non-Danish Speaking Tourists Navigate the Streets of Copenhagen

WTPh? (What the Phonics)  is an interactive installation made by Momo Miyazaki and Andrew Spitz. Street names in Denmark  are close to impossible for foreigners to pronounce, so they did a little intervention in the touristic areas of Copenhagen . They recorded a Danish person speaking the street names, then split up each syllable. In true karaoke style, they placed lights above the matching syllable so that in real-time you could see which part of the word is being spoken.
