Universe is an infinite space, full of unknown and undiscovered things. Facing for this boundless environment, curiosities of the heart are the important issue for exploring more possibilities and unknown knowledge. The Artist believes that the breadth of mind is controlling the scope of the vision. This project uses heartbeat as a metaphor of human ambition. Through the design of the custom-made installations, heartbeat becomes a force to create (draw) the view of the boundless universe environment. In brief, this work uses speaker vibration of heartbeat sound to draw star-like diagrams, which will be reflected to the ceiling to create a cosmic atmosphere and trigger new sounds.
