Starting in 2016, Pulse is an ongoing social practice project, multidisciplinary artwork, and memorial created by collecting the names of fatal victims of armed violence through anonymous public input. 

The added names are read periodically by a group of people as a memorial and then presented as a sound installation.


Thank you for participating

The name Pulse came from two sources.

  • The first 49 names added to the list - the Pulse Nightclub fatal shooting victims.

  • And the rhythmic sound resembling a heart beat created when the names of the victim's is read one-by-one.  

On July 25, 2023 Adolfo Alberto Ortega , the artist's cousin, was murdered by 2 gunman when exiting the gym.
