Pulse Topology

Presented by Superblue Miami & BMW i

Pulse Topology, a stunning immersive artwork by renowned Mexican-Canadian artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, will be available for viewing from November 17, 2022 to August 2023 at Superblue Miami.

As spectacular as it is meaningful, Pulse Topology is an immersive biometric artwork consisting of 3,000 suspended light bulbs, each of which glimmers to the heartbeat of different participants. As visitors traverse a series of crests and valleys of pulsing lights at Superblue, sensors detect and record new heartbeats, which replace the oldest ones, creating a memento mori in which the trace of individual heartbeats gains poetic strength as a powerful choir of human connection.

Recognized for his participatory installations, Lozano-Hemmer’s works are activated by participants’ real-time biometric data such as their heartbeats, breaths, voices or fingerprints – pushing the nature of public engagement to its very limits.

Pulse Topology is presented as a collaboration with BMW i, part of a shared vision where art and technology can create unique experiences for reflection, joy, and social connection.
