Rafael Lozano-Hemmer: Pulse Show

A solo exhibition featuring all installations that Rafael Lozano-Hemmer has made with a biometric interface. This series of works began with the installation "Pulse Room" in the abandoned textile factory "La Constancia" in Puebla, Mexico, in 2006. That project has become one of his best known and has toured extensively, including at the Mexican Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2007. Since then several outdoor and indoor installations have attempted to make tangible the heart rate of hundreds of participants simultaneously. In "Pulse Show" the vital signs of the public are registered and recorded as repetitive sequences that are visualized as flashing lights, waves in a ripple tank and animated finger prints.
