Heart beat… walking pace… We are by nature’s design embedded with pulsation. With beating pulse. With rhythm. And we are by nature inclined to listen to this pulsating rhythms of our physical (well)being. We are not only influenced by them individually, but our natural rhythms intertwine and effect each other. If one is to follow a certain pulse of a walking pace, but desires to hurry – one will run. But if the beating of the heart tells us to slow down, the body reacts and works to synchronize these rhythms, pulsations to reach harmony of movement. And we learn to listen to these pulsations, to feel what is the best for our physical well-being.

Equally, our mind and soul desire this harmony, the well-being – within, but with outer world as well.
Art is the rhythmical throbbing for neurons that produces the regular stimulations of the mind, soul and heart and becomes recurrent rhythmic series of beats, waves, vibrations… Art fills us with necessary pulses and beating. The pulsation that moves both the felt and the intellect, mind and soul, to go forward. To thrive and live. To seek, experience, to experiment, examine, apprehend… to feel and to learn. To live, rather then simply survive life.
