Tonight we went to Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s Pulse Park in Madison Square Park. The installation uses the heartbeat of visitors with two heart rate sensing sculptures installed at each end of the park. Rob did some jumping jacks to increase his pulse rate, my rate barely registered. Which makes sense because I was recuperating from last night’s event at MoMA. Or maybe I’m just faint of heart.
What I especially liked about the installation was that kids were going crazy over the piece, they were flipping out. Pretty cool to watch.
