# Pulse897 is a lighting performance that turns the windows of Simon’s old factory in the Poble Nou neighborhood of Barcelona into a large dynamic light matrix. The project is inspired by the design of the famous Push Button 897 by Simon, made of red bakelite on a black background, and it aims to metaphorically illustrate various aspects of the interaction between people, light and sound.A light matrix is ​​generated through the repetition of luminous elements inspired by this button, evoking the aesthetics of futuristic cinematographic scenes and iconic designs of the late 60s, contemporary of the button and the building itself. The performance consists of a pass of different sequences in which the lights generates dynamisms synchronized with an hypnotic soundtrack, designed for the occasion.
