pulsation by Pieter Geenen

“pulsation” shows a nocturnal view over the city of Nicosia, looking from Greek to Turkish Cyprus, across the UN buffer zone. Imprinted on the mountains of Northern Cyprus and visible to the rest of the divided island, the provocative landmark of a Turkish Cypriot flag is stretched out on the mountain slopes facing the Greek Cypriots. This distant view is synchronized with the sound generated by the flag’s very own operating system on the other side of the border, located high on the mountains. Besides being so obviously visible the flag has now also been made audible, and resonates like a strong heartbeat over the landscape. This act of displacement virtually reconnects both sides of the long war-torn island.
