Final Project

concept

Creating a personal reflective installation experience within a public space by externalizing one’s pulse through light and sound.

intention

To create a meditative sensory experience that encourages the user to fully inhabit their mind and body. 

The amplified visual and auditory representations of their heartbeat will hopefully engage the user with their sense of body in such a way that is otherwise impossible in our daily lives.

Scenario

The Plasmic Reflection would appear at a museum of interactive art or in a lobby as public art. Ideally the installation will operate independently and will encourage people to engage with themselves for a few beats.
