Breathe. Inhale, exhale then, breathe again. The movement of air is invisible. Sometimes we can notice it, while others no, yet the breath is the mark of life, out of the control of the living but under their service entirely.
Breathe. is an interactive installation, that attempts to depict the connection between humans and the natural force of life. Living is a singular act, one human being, a plant, or an animal. But it is also a collective act of living beings depending on other living beings, an ecosystem of regeneration of resources, air included. This complexity of singular and plural, sill and alive, natural and synthetic, is what creates beauty.
The installation is composed of a net hung from the ceiling covered with paper foliage, and behind it, a set of electric fans. As a spectator approaches the net, fans following his movement turn it on and off. The rush of air lifts the paper and creates an organic silhouette as a distorted reflection and a unique soundtrack that accompany the work.
