New interactive sculpture unveiled in Manchester

'Anyone Who Has a Heart' is a light sculpture that displays your heart rate.   

'Anyone Who Has A Heart' by Andrew Small & Steven Almond from Adam Bradley on Vimeo.

It is a landmark and signature artwork recently installed at the entrance to the new Royal Manchester Children's Hospital. Walking around the sculpture triggers sensors and changes the light display. Holding onto the stainless steel hand grips monitors your heart rate and translates that into a red light display synchronised with your pulse. It can also tell you the time as every hour the sculpture turns into a clock. The sequence is explained on floor panels along with information about the heart rate of a range of animals.

It was commissioned by Lime in collaboration with the Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This stunning work was made by artist Andrew Small commissioned through a special arts programme allocation from the hospital's Charitable Funds.
