Pulse Spiral

Pulse Spiral was an interactive artwork by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, on display at the Exploratorium in San Francisco during 2014.

The installation consisted of 300 incandescent light bulbs arranged in a spiral paraboloid.

Sensor handles beneath the towering array of light bulbs detected a user's heartbeat, and software translated this signal into rhythmic flashes, with signals from successive users moving up the spiral.
