The user of this installation can record audio into the buttons that make up the table surface, they then write on the button what they have recorded. They can then make a telephone call, but they cannot speak directly to the person they are calling, rather they must utilise the audio they (or others) have recorded into the different buttons on the table. Over time the table becomes an encyclopedia of telephone conversations.
