A Matter of Respiration
Three compositions portraying a main object, an abstract blob of unknown matter, performing the animation of breathing. Surrounded by other man-made and organic objects, either used for easing breathing complications (inhalers, face masks, nasal strips) or improving air quality (domestic plants, activated charcoal, beeswax candles), the blob keeps inflating and deflating in a continuous, uninterrupted loop. The meditative motion invites to follow the presented rhythm by practicing a calming mindfulness exercise and entering an unpolluted safehaven perfectly structured for escaping the overwhelming nature of the modern life.
