Remote Pulse

“Remote Pulse” is an interactive installation consisting of two identical pulse-sensing stations that are interconnected over the internet. When a person places their hands on one station automatically the person on the other station feels their pulse, as the plates vibrate in sync with the heartbeat of the remote person, and vice versa. The 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.

 The piece exists in two formats: outdoor plinth version and indoor wall-mounted version.
