HeartBeat



The Heartbeat is an interactive luminaire, brings a soothing atmosphere and its rhythms from the consisit by hundred of bulbs. The bulbs are an open electrical circuit, it could sense the touch of a finger, translate into the bulbs light up at the same rhythm from the heartbeat. The intention of this work is to create a soothing and warming atmosphere that is on a human scale, not only with regard to the comfort, but it is also an expression of the biology of human body.

The installation has a special edition in collaboration with the composer, presented as an instrument. In this version, it not only senses the heartbeat signal, lighting the bulb at the same rhythm as the heartbeat. It also brings a novel biological signal musicalization of heartbeat synchronous playback, showing a new type of data-driven art, using the mechanism of heartbeat musicalization and visualization to carry out a novel interactive experience.

<脈動>是一互動燈光裝置,由數百個燈泡組成,通過燈泡閃爍的動態營造出舒緩的照明氛圍。該裝置可以通過觀眾的觸摸感應心跳信號,將其轉化為燈泡以與心跳相同節奏閃爍頻率。該裝置希望建立一種將個人生理訊號擴增至空間情境表現的可能。本裝置將傳統鎢絲燈泡系統與數位感測機制整合,發展數位化的感性資訊表現。它展示了一種新型的數據驅動藝術,以心跳資訊視覺化的機制,表現另類的互動體驗。
