“Oh my [insert ‘god’ from 48 languages here]” installation speaks OMG in real-time (Video)

This is a rad project by Noriyuki Suzuki – a layered and complex art installation that answers the riddles of what does “oh my god” sound like in 48 languages and how often is the word ‘god’ stated on Twitter. Check out the video below to both see & hear the stream of language.

“Oh my (  )” is an installation that calls god in 48 languages using Twitter database. The machine monitors the Twitter timeline in real time and when a tweeted text includes a word, god ( in various languages ), speakers sound “oh my ( god in the tweeted language )” at the same time. The list of accessed 48 languages is following.

A Word, “God” in different languages implies the cultural complexity and the difference in our world, and the name of god is influenced by each religious contexts, racial exchanges and invasions throughout human history. If you focused on a single word of god in a certain cultural area, it would not look problematic at all though, if you arranged those words in different languages, it could be seen as an unexchangeability, untranslatability, and discord rather than diversity and abundance between the various cultures.
