The Heartbeat Amplifier (HBA) is a viscerally interactive art project that passively monitors the participant’s heartbeat, via electrocardiogram (ECG) signal. The human-sensitive papasan chair amplifies and condition the participant’s ECG to drive audio, haptic (touch sensation), visual and thermal transducers to stimulate those respective perceptual pathways in the participant.
