Each lightbulb shows the pulse of a past participant.
Pulse Spiral by Rafael Lozano Hemmer is on display for just a few more Thursday nights (6-10pm) before the exhibit closes on 8/14/14.
Pulse Spiral was created from a heart rate sensor, computer, DMX controller, custom software, digital dimmers, 300 incandescent lightbulbs, 3 miles of cable, and a metal platform.

Our entire world history nailed.
Things which remain consistant - Sex, death and war.
this is the greatest thing I have seen on tumblr.
um. i believe most people have contemplated or attempted suicide these days. or at least that seems to be the norm. im no exception, mortality is interesting and everyone has it. but im glad im still here and i know better now that life does fluctuate and no matter how bad things to get theres a “worst” spot you reach and then it gets better eventually, when you compare it to the “worst” spot you’re now in that you just left. and then when things get too good, you know you’re due for a decline at some point.
i guess what im saying is thats just how the world works. usually a temporary problem will lead someone making that permanent stop. but tapping out early when just the fact that you were born was an improbable sperm trip gestation random array of spliced parental genetic code arranged perfectly into a one and only you opportunity seems sortof like spitting in the face of nature and the cosmos.
plot twist: even though i feel that way about MY life taking skills, i also feel like whether or not someone chooses to take their life is a decision only they can make for themselves and i have no idea what someone else is living through and its not my place to decide when or how they live or if they live at all.
but nothing stays great forever. and nothing stays shitty forever.
