Opus Pericardium is Sarah Harvey’s first major exhibition working in collaboration with composers, Simon C Russell and Tim Yates.
Opus Pericardium is a sci-art project exploring the poetry and topography of the heart made tangible. By translating the rhythm and pulse of life through the digital data of electrocardiogram readings, this piece unearths the secret music of the human heart; sculpting with sound, the heart’s tacit musical language.
