"Sound spaces are not simply spaces in which sounds can be heard, but rather, where sounds first create the space, shaping its special characteristics. Audio events can create not only a special experience of the external, surrounding space, they can also make it possible to experience physical space as 'internal' space. Leitner's work leads to acoustic qualities (of space) that remain hidden in the stream of stimuli, and it shows us opportunities for sensuous experience that we are barely aware of, since they have been lost or because their potential has remained unrecognized." (Cathrin Pichler) 

Bernhard Leitner (*1938) is regarded as a pioneer, and is today one of the most prominent, internationally recognized artists in this new area of time-based plastic arts. . P.U.L.S.E. documents his sculptures, architectural projects and installations mainly from the past decade. An accompanying DVD covers the period of time from 1971 to the present day.
