            Emotional Resonance is an interactive installation that transforms humans’ pulse into motion and light reflections. As our pulse is influenced by emotion, and as a machinery reflection on our body signals creates a fascinating feedback loop, this work aims to explore emotions mediated by an interactive art installation. The project aims to foster the discourse on how biometric technology can cause emotions and consequently, how it connects us with a responsive machine or interactive art installation. The core questions, this work is provoking are (1) Can a machine, which is synchronized with our pulse create an emotional response? (2) How can an interactive machine or an art installation generate emotional resonance?
