‘Artworks created with your heart rhythm through an interactive ritual’



Totem is an organically growing project byJulie de Ruijter & Beer van Geer. Through a contemporary ritual the artists capture the rhythm of the heart into unique visual artworks.

Our heart rhythm is a reflection of our inner processes and the world around us, constantly changing and connected to the natural rhythms and frequencies of others. By merging innovative technologies with the artist’s intuition, Totem explores a way to make this inner landscape tangible by creating symbolic artworks that reflect the internal rhythms of the viewer.

Each Totem is a testament to the person’s personal transformation and uniqueness, and our connection to the whole. Revealing the complexity and the interconnectednes of our rhythms that make up the tapestry of humanity.


Experience a Totem Ritual


The Totem Ritual invites you to become a co-creator of the project by making an artwork with your own heart rhythm. Through this transformative experience, you can intuitively connect with your unique rhythm and experience the interconnectedness of all things. Join us in exploring the beauty of our collective rhythms and the transformative power of art.
