blood and sweat landscape

A cardiogram is a registration of the electric activity of the heart muscle. It gives insight into the functioning of the heart. Blood and sweat landscape is an artistic visualisation of the impact of an animation with sound on heart-rate and skin dampness of the person viewing the animation. This piece springs from one of the psychological experiments conducted for the Virtual View project. That experiment measured the influence of animation in combination with sound and sound alone. This visualisation shows a slice of the animation every second, the sound-wave and the effect they have on heart-rate (top) and dampness of the skin (below).
