Our heart rate represents something that is crucial in our lives, our heart pumping blood, life. It is also something unique that reflects of our mental and physical state, but we usually don’t pay attention to it. We think we should. We created an interactive experience where two people look into each other's eyes while standing in front of one another. Each person is surrounded by a blob that pulsates to their heart rate. As the heart rates become synced, the blobs start to grow; once totally synced, the blobs combine to create a beautiful pulsating effect.
