This Incredible VR Installation Will Use Your Heartbeat To Create Stunning Visuals

This breathtaking installation at London’s Saatchi Gallery uses virtual reality to help us connect with nature.

Highlighting the “invisible but fundamental” connection we have with the natural world, this virtual reality installation, created by Marshmallow Laser Feast, will bring art, science and technology together. Using breath sensors and heart monitors to create stunning visuals, it’s set to be a one-of-a-kind experience – offering an unparalleled level of immersion.

The sensors will track visitors’ breath in real-time and, with every exhale, you’ll be able to see oxygen and carbon dioxide appearing in front of you. Meanwhile, you’ll be surrounded by an explosion of nature, in stunning displays of light and colour.

This unique experience, titled We Live In An Ocean Of Air, will allow us to interact with an entire ecosystem, and gives us a moment to reflect on our dependence on—and our responsibility to—other organisms.

As well as incorporating heartbeat and breath, there’ll also be binaural sound, scent dispersal systems and wind machines, creating a truly multi-sensory experience.

Ersin Han Ersin of Marshmallow Laser Feast says: ‘In this and other works we have created, we are seeking to repair our broken connection with nature through the experience of art. From the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe, humanity’s dependence on the natural world is absolute, placing the audience in the centre of these ecosystems, we aim to bring them closer to an understanding of our interconnectivity.’
