Astro Balloon 1969 Revisited (2008, Biennale Venice, for Coop Himmelb(l)au)

Coop Himmelb(l)au’s recovered feedback installation of 1969. Based on the idea of the ‘Feedback Circuit Program’ from 1971, the visitors heartbeat is measured and transformed. Visuals corresponding to this data input cause this feedback with the visitors, allowing them to communicate (network) non verbaly.
