Heartbeat deals with loneliness and isolation. The installation is installed on a rocky outcropping in a remote forest in Asikkala, Finland. The piece consists of a life-size wooden house containing an animated light. Its title refers to the Elvis Presley song “Heartbreak Hotel”, and the light is animated to pulse to the rhythm of that song.
