Hearts Acquiesce

Royal College of Art
MA Information Experience Design

Two beats out of time will always appear to sync together for a few moments.

Taking advantage of this phenomenon this installation invites two people to place their hands over pulse sensors on either side of the lightbox plinth. The sensors translate the heartbeats into animations on the plinth’s surface. When the pulses sync the animation changes, creating a sense of momentary connection.

Built with Processing and Arduino.
