Description

En halein its a mixed media installation (in progress)  where the spectator can witness a suspended breathing that ultimately turns into apnoea. Two close-up shots of an air gush, buried in dark sand, show the expanding and contracting of the supraclavicular region. In each inhalation there is an intent to hold the breath for as long as possible. The pulsing of the hart beat is visible through the veins inasmuch as the shortness of breath is becoming more evident. Both videos are synchronised in order to alternate between the exhalation and inhalation, setting a dialogic pace between the buried images.
