Connected Heartbeats is a light-based art installation that translates the sounds of two hearts into a moving visual pattern. A microphone embedded in a stethoscope picks up the sound of your heart and translates it into a moving visual pattern. A second stethoscope allows an additional person to join in, creating a mesmerizing sequence of moving patterns based on each individual's heart rate. Studies have shown that people's heartbeats when in a group of friends or relatives often sync up or harmonize during emotional events. Connected Heartbeats is an experience that binds people together through the visuals created by and for them.
