Did you know that there are more languages spoken in NYC than in any other city in the world? Over 800 languages are spoken in NYC and many of them are rare or endangered. We're a non-profit research group and we’re collecting phone recordings of New Yorkers counting from 1 to 100 for a new multimedia artwork. Please help us create an artwork that includes all the communities, voices and languages of NYC by calling 917-905-6647 and recording yourself saying 1–100 in any language. Our 24/7 counting hotline is an automated voice system so just call and respond to the prompts. Recording takes about 5 minutes.
