Emerging video artist Danielle Gotell invites you to speak with your cardiac muscles. Built with the engineers at Limbic Media, Gotell uses a system of heart rate sensors to blend four heart beats into Impulse, a multi-media video installation.

Impulse draws on the vital actions of our bodies and amplifies the information they broadcast unconsciously. The unique heart rates of up to four participants interact with one another within the intimate space of Danielle Gotell’s sculptural installation. The inner space is kept private for the active participants to experience through individual viewports.
