Assignment n˚2

For the second assignment of Rest of you we had to make or use) two sensors, an outward pointing one, and an inward pointing one, and log their output for as long as possible.

My outward pointing sensor was to draw every night the things I see right before falling asleep. It is a stretch to say that these things are outward pointing, but they are perceived as being exterior.








The inward pointing sensor was a heart sensor made from an led, a resistor and a ldsr affecting a recorded piece of music (The Age of Aquarius), this is then broadcast to 88.1 fm, from whence anyone in a range of 100 meters can tune in and record the audio, thus creating a log. I futzed around with this combination until the ldsr had enough variance from the light changing around my finger (theoretically the blood flowing in and out) to be noticeable by the human ear as rythmic. I think that an interesting and noticeable effect has been achieved, but I need a professional grade heart sensing device to pit my data against to be sure that that is the information we are hearing and not the projections of our own desires to believe.
