THE HEART_BIT LAMP is an interactive table lamp that provides not only a functional white light but also an emotional red accent light, which triggers at the exact same rhythm of user’s pulse. When you touch the sensor your pulse is transformed by the embedded software into lighting effects.
People can experience their heartbeat and see their pulse represented trough 'choreographic light': it attempt to make visible something audible, to make it more public and to share it.
The Heart Beat lamp uncovers perceptions, embodying them in a different medium, to engage with the user and educe feelings of connective human experiences.
