Pulse+ for iPhone is based on a video work by Pink Twins, adding a generative and interactive twist. This artwork has a duration of four minutes.
Pulse+ is a reconstruction of a natural phenomenon. A satellite photo of a Siberian glacier is transformed through 3D animation and digital manipulation into an ice storm, raging to the rhythm of a regular pulse. The multidimensional work consists of found footage layers and parallel rhythms. The chaos of the nature is harnessed to a rhythm and format that is easier to grasp by a human being.
Pink Twins is a duo of visual artists and electronic musicians, brothers Juha and Vesa Vehviläinen, based in Helsinki, Finland. Active as Pink Twins since 1997, Pink Twins have shown their works in exhibitions and festivals on all continents and performed audiovisual live shows through Europe, Americas, Asia and Australia.

It's art! This piece reminded me of those dreams where you are trying to accomplish something vastly important but it becomes obscure and physically impossible moments before you wake up:)
My eyes bounced!
Excellent art work indeed. During My first try I found myself appreciating your idea as the pulse beat more.
I'm treating this app as art so I will pass along this 1.99 video painting, and will show my friends at the right time.
For the users wrd.of.adv--don't expect much interaction...I couldn't tell if was doing anything.
built-in beat detection for visulization effects; hint: charge more and ill use it for deejaying. Or make it bpm capable to sync own "pulse " rate.
That's enough. Thanks
