Concept Description

Date: 29.11 – 01.12 2013 Time: 17:00 – 23.00 Location: De La Gardie department store facade, Viru st 13/15 Price: Free Self invented device Emograph will measure a tale and emotions of every heart and display the result on a building wall. All you have to do is insert a finger into mysterious device so it can measure your pulse. Then heart impulses are transformed into bright mosaic of colours and sound. After the finger is inserted into the device, the measured pulse forces a turn in motorized kaleidoscope which is equipped with a video camera bringing the image of the rotating kaleidoscope to a wall of a building. Measured pulse is converted into beat impulses which supplement the project with a soundtrack in the beat of the heart. Emograph is an interactive large-scale project, which invites visitors to engage by offering innovative view on light games – it transforms heartbeats into light and colour mosaic. Creation of mind has limits, but it is not possible to control a heart. It will do whatever it wants. Emograph is a successful project that has been seen first time in Riga light festival “Staro Riga” on November of year 2012. Project authors are “I DID IT” society founded in Latvia, which combines a variety of creative people, artists, video and event producers. The idea and realization of Emograph is a collective work.
