Our hearts keep us alive by beating more than 100,000 times every day. But are we aware of this fact in our daily routine? By externalizing the visitor’s heartbeat, this work reminds those who experience it of the uncertainty of their own existence. Water is the beginning of life, and it is omnipresent all around us in various states and shapes. In “all around,” water as an originally anonymous element appears as a representation of specific individual life as defined by the respective person’s heartbeat. The visitor’s mirror image on the water surface is distorted by the beat of his or her own heart, and appears as a reflection of one “life” of its own.
