This project explores the relation between the body and time, making it unique and specific to each individual being. The project focuses on interpreting the time of a body. The project develops into a system of reading, measuring, and translating the heartbeats into units of time. It draws a bridge between art and technology and translates the body’s activities into a unique expression of time. Microprocessors, along with digital sensors are used to collate the readings of the heartbeat and categorise them into units that express a display of time. The collaboration of various mediums expresses the sophistication of the systems that make one’s body function the way it does. Time here is made to be specific and personal. The uniqueness in time exists in nature and the project is a beginning to understanding these connections and relationships that time makes as it progresses.
