Breathe in/ Breathe out
Metallic stands, clock mechanisms, perspex graphs; dimensions variable
Within the Breathe
in/Breathe out environment, the viewer
is encouraged to walk among eight body height stands. Atop each stand
are two functioning clock mechanisms with only their second hand
attached. In place of the clock face, pie graphs have been positioned.
The sixteen graphs are based on various combinations of potential
breathing patterns. As the second hand ticks around the graph, the
viewer is invited to breathe in and breathe out according to the
suggested pattern. Each pattern had a different affect of the viewers
body either leaving them gasping for breath or hyperventilating.
In opposition, the clocks ticking in unison created a highly comforting
and appealing sound.
