PI (personal interpreters) is a set of small robotic devices, which deconstruct TV broadcasts’ audio signals. The robots interpret the regular audio signal as control code and translate it into abstract rhythmic sounds using the actual TV set as resonant body. In this translation process they create surprising image/sound relationships, challenging the audience to watch well-known TV content in novel ways.
