Pulse Pool

"Directed by Adam Brown and Andrew Fagg, the Symbiotic Computer Laboratory at the University of Oklahoma included: Andy Archinal, Sam Bleckley, Casey Courtney, Patrick Cunningham, Joshua Gay, Brent Goddard, Jared Gomez, Tim Hunt, Justen Renyer, Matt Roman, James Avery, Alan Hatcher, and Quintin Hughes. For the first time, two cities are connected via the human pulse. From today through April 29th, during the Cambridge Science Festival and the Boston Cyberarts Festival, the MUSEUM OF SCIENCE, and NEW RADIO AND PERFORMING ARTS, Inc. present 'Pulse Pool.' Place a finger to your neck or wrist. Find your pulse. How does it alter your awareness of your body? Imagine if you could simultaneously see and experience another person's pulse the way you feel your own. The interconnected components of the 'Pulse Pool' project explore how access to otherwise unavailable corporal information affects human interaction. Wearable electronic units measure individuals' heart rates and transmit this data to other participants through physical stimulation created by small, vibrating motors incorporated within the devices. This allows participants to feel the pulse of individuals who are in close proximity to them." -- From Turbulence
