Duffy Square within Times Square

Sterotank's HeartBeat-aaaFor the past six years, the Times Square Alliance has invited architecture and design firms to submit proposals for an annual Times Square Valentine Heart Design..  “HeartBeat”, this year’s winning design by Brooklyn-based firm Stereotank, is a heart-beating urban drum. This engagement sculpture consists of a massive heart glowing to the rhythm of a strong, deep and low frequency heartbeat sound which changes its rate as visitors approach, move around and engage with it by playing various percussion instruments and joining the base rhythm of the heartbeat. The audience is invited to come together and creatively play, listen, dance and feel the vibrations of the heart while enjoying the warm pulsating light. In the emblematic, active, flickering atmosphere of Times Square, HeartBeat orchestrates multiple rhythms into a unique urban concert. The sculpture will be on display until March 8th.  This is in partnership with The Architectural League of New York. Lighting, sound, and interaction design provided by Arup.
