Pulse Park, 2008

Concurrent installation in Madison Square Park, Oct 24 – Nov 17, 2008.

Pulse Park is comprised of a matrix of light beams that graze the central oval field of Madison Square Park. Its intensity is entirely modulated by two sensors that measure the heart rate of participants and the resulting effect is a visualization of vital signs, arguably our most symbolic biometric, in an urban scale.
