ANAISA FRANCO (Based in Berlin)

Heart of the City is an interactive public art sculpture that pulses light according to the heartbeat of the people. The sculpture invites people to sit and to interact with it. When a person places its finger on the pulse sensor located in one of the seats of the sculpture, it starts to light on and off according to the rhythm of the heart beat of the user. When nobody is touching the pulse sensor, the Heart of the City has its own rhythm and illumination.
