Pulse Front, 2007
From the series Relational Architecture 12
Interactive installation with metal sculptures with embedded heart rate sensors, computer, search lights
View from the Luminato Festival, Toronto, Canada, 2007
With 200Kw of power and 15Km visibility, the installation intended to blend the intimate with the spectacular in one of the most emblematic public spaces in Toronto. The piece was live for ten nights, quietly presenting designs from dusk to midnight.
Despite the monumental size of the installation and its wide visibility, the project is not intended as a cathartic pre-programmed spectacle like a fireworks display or a son-et-lumière show. On the contrary, the piece is designed to attract constant, personal participation in an ever evolving parade of light sculptures generated by people.
