On view in Eyebeam's Window Gallery through August 4th, Brian House's "Forty-eight to Sixteen" documents his daily bicycle commute from Brooklyn to Midtown Manhattan.  The accompanying audio, performed by cellist Topu Lyo, was composed using data gathered from sensors recording Houses' heart rate, breathing, and pedaling.  Through the interplay of House and Lyo's 'performances' of the recorded data, the piece explores the physiological basis of empathy and imagines the future integration of biometrics into documentary and narrative film.
