Inside Rhythms: Heartbeats, 1983

Photograph of CAVS Fellow Christopher Janney's "Inside Rhythms: Heartbeats." The dancer wears a bio-engineering device developed by Transkinetics, Inc. which monitors the electrical impulses to the heart and surrounding muscles. Placed on the chest and amplified through filters and a sound system, this machine provides an unusual percussion track. Layered over this sound is live vocal/instrumental music. Photograph: unknown.
