37: Ticker EEC
The 7-Year Itch

Mixed media on paper
12 x 17.25 inches

Collective cardiography (with audience as participants) at East End Collaborations ’02, Queen Mary College, London E1, 28/09/02.

Up to 12 people gather around a long table and feel their neighbour’s pulse through neck and temple arteries only. Thus, everyone’s right hand is free to note every pulse beat with a pencil tick mark on the resonating table top. Even in such a large Ticker chain, periods of cardiac synchronicity occur. (See also numbers 25 and 27.)
