Event: Pulse Park in Madison Square Park, NYC
As part of the Mad. Sq. Art program, on October 24 visitors to Madison Square Park in Manhattan will have the opportunity to see their heartbeats brought to life in Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s Pulse Park light installation. The interactive event will be on view from sundown until 10pm everyday from October 24 until Nov 17. The large, park-wide installation will use the vital signs of passers-by, measured by two heart rate sensing sculptures installed at the North and South ends of the Oval Lawn. A ‘pulsating matrix’ made up of 200 spotlights will blink to reflect the biometric rhythms gathered by the sculptures.
