Pulse Room

I love this kind of thing. Installation art can either be a lost cause of someones rather strange idea of art and in other cases be something so mesmerizing that you just have to see it again and again. The Pulse Room strikes me as one of these and is similar to some installations that have popped up on Southbank in London.


Pulse Room by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, premiered at Plataforma exhibition in Puebla, 2006, and shown at the Venice Biennale 2007. A sensor records the pulse of the public and converts it into light flashes shown by incandescent light bulbs. At any given time the room shows the heartbeat of the 100 most recent participants.
