Abstract

This article aims to explore an innovative application pairing optical fibers with an electrocardiography (ECG)/respiration (RESP) sensor in art. The constructed interactive work Clock Inside Out not only reflects multifaceted human life but also coexists with the body in the world. Thus, the body is extended to take on a technological character and portrayed as a heteromerous embodiment. Following an analysis of the artwork, the article elaborates on the aesthetic and corporeal phenomena arising from it and concludes with the new meanings and implications carried by the artwork.
