Rotary X  is an interactive sound sculpture that uses an altered rotary telephone to engage visitors in conversation. The phone records and plays back audience responses to a series of prompts. Rotary X has created conversations at Root Division, Pro Arts, and at the Tenderloin Museum, where it collected stories from neighborhood residents as part of Temporal Cities, my collaboration with fellow artist Radka Pulliam.

Rotary X is fully open source! Please make your own version that builds on mine. For the electronics, I created an Instructable, and for the code, please fork my Git (is that what you say?).
