A light and sound installation bringing an ancient tree to life. The work used light and sound to create the illusion of a heartbeat emanating from the heart of the tree. The work helps viewers consider the life of a tree and recognise it as a living being that, like us, is born, lives, and dies. The red pulsing lights which illuminated the core of the tree created artery like forms from the base of the tree up into the canopy.
