Plaza Mercurio. District of Barajas

In Rythmus, our hands, and by extension our bodies, become the means to connect both to our biological rhythms and this circular interactive sculpture. An installation that makes visible the heartbeat of two people who, facing each other, are connected to a circular network of interactive light totems. These lights take on their own life, unfolding and evolving according to the similarities and differences of a vital and intimate phenomenon: the heartbeat of two users.

Chevalvert is a visual design studio founded by Patrick Paleta and Stéphane Buellet. With Rythmus they bring to the capital an installation that transforms this individual physiological phenomenon into a collective experience, creating a union between the two users, the organic structure, the public, and the surrounding space.

Location

Plaza de Mercurio: Barajas was one of the historical villages and towns in the vicinity of Madrid which, in the 20th century, just like Chamartín, Vallecas, Vicálvaro, Villaverde, Carabanchel Alto and Carabanchel Bajo, became part of the municipality of the capital. The district’s old quarter, which dates back to the 16th century, is home to some of its most historical and interesting monuments, including its Plaza Mayor, the San Pedro de Antioquía church, and Plaza de Mercurio.
