We create and play on the unceded traditional country of the Kaurna people.

Pulsing Heart is a creative studio based in Adelaide, South Australia, making and touring large scale participatory art installations worldwide.

Our whimsical projects become the beating heart of public spaces, inviting participation and play regardless of physical ability, age or culture.

HEXADECA, our cornerstone work, is an architecturally-designed music making playground that invites audiences to engage with art in a tactile way. The project was commissioned by WOMADelaide and premiered in 2022 to rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. It has since toured across Australia to festivals, town squares and public spaces receiving a Merit Award at the 2022 Designers Australia Awards.

Our work distracts you from the real world and redefines your experience of art through indulgent play.
