The concept of this sculpture is meant to appeal to heart and mind. I want contemporary art to create a dynamic, giving the people living around the sculpture a chance to take part in it. What I loathe, is passive stone sculptures only filling the site. „SOL / Pulse” works as a symbol and leading star for a sculpture complex in motion. Made of glass, light, stainless steel and a hand formed concrete base, this is a symbiosis of contemporary art and modern habitation where the core idea was to communicate with the inhabitants.
