Each cedar column contains the captured audio of the artists' heartbeats in this residual piece of Circulatory, 2012 at the Chicago Cultural Center. Installed amongst Austin Knierim's Linear Hierarchy of the Hippocampus: a bamboo grove springing from the hardwood floors of the gallery, visitors experience the heart resonating from the pillars. Pinard stethoscopes, metal cones used by physicians and midwives to listen to heart rhythms, were also available, enabling visitors to listen to each others' pulse.
