Specially designed for Abu Dhabi in conjunction with Seeing Through Light: Selections from the Guggenheim Abu Dhabi Collection by the artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Pulse Corniche is the culmination of a series of interactive public art-works that debuted at the 2007 Venice Bienniale with Pulse Room.
Pulse Corniche (2015) is an interactive canopy of powerful light beams projected into to the sky by robotic searchlights whose brightness and orientation is controlled by the heart-rate of visitors to the Abu Dhabi’s Corniche.
People are free to participate by holding a sensor placed in the centre of the plaza that converts the electrical activity of their heart into a unique lighting sequence. The intensity and direction of the lights makes visual the different biometric rhythms of each participant.
