PULSE is a motion piece that is exciting yet calm, made up of black and white graphical elements that flow into each other. The work seeks to mesmerise visitors through the pure beauty of the light and sound spectacle. The soundtrack is pitched at 432Hz, a frequency that resonates with the patterns of the universe.
