Using Arduino and heart pulse detector, this project provides the viewer with an interactive lighting installation. Viewers could change the lighting with their heartbeats. Inspired by personal experience involving clinical treatments, this project is opened to different interpretations varied by different viewers.

The change of lighting shows how one’s feelings change internally even if they are not expressing it out verbally. The installation could also be seen as a way to visualize one’s feelings, giving the viewers a meditation time to look closely at their current state of minds.
