Aerial view of Madison Square Park, New York City.

"Pulse Park" is comprised of a matrix of light beams that graze the central oval field of Madison Square Park. Its intensity is entirely modulated by two sensors that measure the heart rate of participants and the resulting effect is the visualization of vital signs, arguably our most symbolic biometric, in an urban scale.
