Biofeedback
CRT television fitted with hand-wound electromagnet, video camera, pulse sensor, Arduino board, stereo receiver, guitar cords, S-Video cable, table, chair

A feedback loop between the camera and monitor produces a glowing orb on the screen. The viewer's heartbeat is monitored by a pulse sensor worn around the index finger. Each pulse sends a signal to an electromagnet installed in the back of the television, organically distorting the image on screen.
