About Pulse

The Pulse limited edition print was one of the very first selection of Pink Floyd album cover designs to be revisited and re-envisaged as an art print by Storm Thorgerson at the very beginning of this century. Storm Thorgerson, advises us to "Look more deeply and you will find further visual connections that link and refer to Pink Floyd, some of which were never even intended. But then again, what do designers know?" The eye design on the front of the Pulse CD box comprised about 36 separate photographs moulded and vignetted together. The design reflects, in the viewer's actual eye, elements of the live Pink Floyd concert circle of lights. It is stylistically a mixture of old semi-psychedelic ideas and modern technology to echo the variety of material in the concert. The circularity of the eye, pupil and iris; the circularity of the film screen at a Pink Floyd show; the circularity of the approaching moon; even the circularity of time embodied in the wide range of songs on Pulse. All these were carried through the entire package. Closer inspection of the front art reveals symbols and images that refer to Pink Floyd songs: a bike for Syd Barrett for example, and various elements only lately discovered by the cognoscenti. This archival inkjet print, printed on a Somerset enhanced paper is a chance to view all the wonderful elements of the design on a proper scale.
