Merete Carlson: Intertwining the Invisible. Movement and Affect in Public Art Installations

Merete Carlson discusses affect linked to interactive/relational art and installations and draws on theorists Brian Massumi and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. She describes her own reactions when interacting with an installation, Rafael Lozano Hemmer's Pulse Park, which measures the pulse of the visitors and visualizes its rhythm in light. Her focus is the emotions and relational architecture and she asks us to rethink embodied involvement in such environments.
