Benches invite rest and taking in one's surroundings. Instead of efficiency or surveillance, how might biosensing technology be enrolled to support this simple yet foundational aspect of public space?
The Heart Sounds Bench project is partially supported by a Jacobs Innovation Center grant (jacobsinstitute.berkeley.edu/news/introducing-fall-2018-innovation-catalysts-grant-winners/). Eric Arvai produced this film as press coverage for Jacobs. Thank you Eric and Jacobs!
