Pulse Mirror

Artist:Henry, Chang

“Pulse Mirror” is an interactive installation device that collects and translates participants’ pulse rate into a mirrored visual image. The mirror image is created by a series of circles that “pulsate” heart rate data collected from different participants. Participants input their heart rate by placing their finger on the device for 15 seconds. The device incorporates an Arduino, which detects the heart rate and a random circle on the screen will become the representation of participant’s heart rate. Those circles on the screen will change their color to form a mirrored image that is captured by the webcam on the monitor.

The "self" in this mirror is asking the question if "I" is truly a singular.
