this project, displayed at the Sullivan Galleries in 2013, was an installation comprised of a homebrew electrocardiogram detector, and a "hologram" projector (executed by pepper's ghost).

the EKG circuit measured my heartbeat. each heartbeat would trigger the program to select one of my alter-ego identities at random. a video feed of me as this identity was projected into the "hologram machine" housed by an empty Macintosh Classic.

role: project manager, design, demonstration and documentation.
