I have constantly stressed the pulsative function as it were of the subconscious” - Jacques Lacan
The Pulse is a force sewn into the fabric of private and public space. From neon hoardings to video games to the ticking of a clock, from car windows to the dancefloor, the pulse is both liberating and threatening. At the same time, the pulse is intimate, inside of our ticking bodies, measuring longing and desire. We depend on the pulse to keep us going, we absorb it both consciously and subconsciously.
