NYC Park’s Light Show to be Controlled By Your Heartbeat

An upcoming art installation in New York City’s Madison Square Park will have a light show that is controlled by people’s pulses. Artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s first U.S. public art display will be called Pulse Park and runs Oct 24th-Nov 17th. Visitors’ heart rates will be monitored by one of two sensor sculptures at either end of the oval shaped lawn. Their pulses will then activate 200 spotlights in a pulsating matrix of light across the lawn. The rendering above looks pretty cool, can’t wait to check it out!
