Installation with heart rate sensor board.

Remote Pulse is an interactive installation consisting of two pulse-sensing stations that are interconnected over the Internet. When a person places their hands on one station automatically the persono in the other station feels their pulse, as the plates vibrate in sync with the heartbeath of the remote person, and viceversa. Two lights indicate the hearthbeat of both persons as well.

This piece was originally presented as part of Lozano-Hemmer’s Border Tuner installation across the US-Mexico border, with one station in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, and the other in El Paso, Texas. For the exhibition Latidos, the stations were interconnected between Arte Abierto, in Mexico City and the Museo Amparo of Puebla. Now both stations are located in the architectural complex of Artz Pedregal.
