reel-to-reel recorder, tapeloop, computer, microphone, speakers, software, 2018

A tapeloop is repeating the words "ja", "nee", "wel", "niet", "goed" and "fout" (Dutch for "yes", "no", "is", "isn't", "wrong" and "right") in randomized order.

A computer has been programmed to recognize those words and reply with the opposite. If the tapeloop says "ja", the computer replies with "nee", and so on.
