Membrane is an interactive bio-sensing installation exploring affective vibrations, intersubjectivity and the permeability of our barriers. With a nod to affect and string theory it uses sound and light to project the intimate rhythm of the heart into the public sphere. Membrane places the curious centre stage, turns the spotlight on affect and locates the bypasser as witness and collaborator.

Acknowledgments go to the MIT team who developed the eulerian video magnification code upon which the heart rate measuring aspect of this artwork is based.
