Japanese artist Sasaki paints the individual heartbeats of attendees at the Dwell on Design show in Los Angeles, California June 26. Sasaki is collecting donations for tsunami victims in Japan. After making a donation, the attendee's pulse is electronically monitored and relayed by speaker to the artist, who then interprets the beats onto a canvas using red paint.
