beating heart


Over three years in the making, beating heart headed to Leeds Light Night 2017…

A large scale light installation which creates an animated beating heart within a building rather than projected onto a facade, the piece brings the cityscape to life with an iconic and captivating animation. Site specific and interactive via the use of two heart shaped podiums at street level, the work can be adapted to suit the infrastructure and logistics of any given building.

An attempt to create a visual and tangible link between people and the fabric of their city, ‘beating heart’ is symbolic of the life, energy and frenzied cycles of the urban landscape. The piece explores and highlights the intrinsic connection between our existence and the structures that surround, support and shape us.

This project was generously supported by Bruntwood, Light Night Leeds and made a reality by Artistic Solutions.
