Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, presented by BMW

Talk Art SPECIAL EPISODE!!!! This week we talk to Rafael Lozano-Hemmer to discuss his new collaboration with Superblue (@superblue.art) and BMW i, “Pulse Topology” presented on the occasion of this year’s Art Basel (@artbasel). The participatory artwork is composed of 6.000 lightbulbs, suspended from the ceiling at different heights, that glimmer to the heartbeat of visitors detected by custom-made pulse sensors.


The presentation is inspired by a shared vision for a sustainable future, and a desire to create experiences for retreat, reflection, joy, and social connection. Following an inspiring dialogue with BMW engineers and designers, Lozano-Hemmer’s team will use the same technology as in “Pulse Topology” to activate the BMW i7’s interior with passengers' heartbeats. This intervention can be seen as an extension of the i7’s use of light and new technology to emphasize the human-centric design of the new BMW i7.


Stay tuned to see this immersive experience come to life.
