The Heartbeat Museum
“The Heart represents in all cultures the seat of life and soul. Each heartbeat is a little different and reminds us of the human being it bore. Since 2008, I decided to create a world archive where thousands of hearts from all over the world would be stored.
In Wulong, I wanted to set up a permanent pavilion for recording and listening to Chinese hearts first and then to other visitors from all over the world. The heartbeats recorded in this way will be both kept in the pavilion and available for everyone to listen to. This place should become, over time, a place of pilgrimage where everyone will remember a loved one. These beats will outlive those who gave them and will remain as the memory of missing humans.”
