Pulse Topology is the first presentation in Miami of Rafael Lozano-Hemmer‘s ongoing series of ‘Pulse Artworks’, which capture and make tangible participants’ heartbeats. Pulse Topology is an immersive light and sound environment activated by six pulse sensors with breakthrough photoplethysmography (PPG) technology that uses computer vision algorithms to optically detect each visitor’s heartbeat.


Three-thousand lightbulbs suspended at different heights will create a glimmering landscape of crests and valleys. Inspired by conversations with engineers and designers of the new BMW i7, Lozano-Hemmer will use the same technology that activates Pulse Topology to illuminate the BMW i7’s interior with a visitor’s heartbeat. See designboom’s previous coverage here of the installation on view this past summer in Basel.

Audi x Andrés Reisinger

miami art week 2022the installation takes inspiration from the Audi ‘grandsphere’ concept vehicle


At this year’s Design Miami/, Audi presents a new immersive and experiential digital installation in cooperation with digital artist and designer Andrés Reisinger. The new work is inspired by the Audi ‘grandsphere’ concept, an outlook to the future of premium mobility by Audi.


To create meaningful and fascinating experiences that will shape premium mobility and design, Audi believes in co- creation. Together with Andrés Reisinger the brand explores a sphere beyond a physical installation, digitally re- interpreting interior spaces.


Audi has the vision to create a better future for generations to come and this attitude is deeply rooted in the brand, striving for progress. For Audi, the future is a space – for ideas, innovations and designs. By re-thinking design and approaching it from inside out, the Audi ‘grandsphere’ concept — not available as a production vehicle — demonstrates a human-centric experience, a personal sphere.
