Heart Beat was recently premiered at Lightwaves 2016 at the Salford Quays and MediaCityUK location. The installation comprises of a 3mx9m structure, which incorporates perspective interplay through the seemingly sporadic positioning of steel rods. From the side, audiences see a heart rate line running through the structure. At the front of the installation, they are encouraged to join hands with a friend or loved one in order to complete the circuit, using the sensors to reveal the symbol of a heart. 

The artwork installation will be lead by our Technical Manger, with assistance from your technicians.
