Description: “Beat” is a story elaborated from your “Heart”. Viewers experience the work with their hearts in their hands. Viewers encounter a rusted robot without a “heart” to move. Viewers can grant him a new heart by putting theirs on the robot. “Heart” becomes the key to move the story forward.
