500 breaths – video installation & sonic sculpture

One hundred balloons hang in the space: a projection surface. Images projected include a figure blowing up the 100 balloons: each balloon contains 5 breaths. The puff of each breath echoes in the space …

… as the video images run out the balloons morphs into a moving sonic sculpture.  The performers gently pierce the neck of each balloon – each pierce releasing 5 breaths. 500 breaths hiss and sigh as the balloons sway and the structure slowly collapses …

500 breaths was part of Breath Pieces – a performance installation at Tramway Glasgow June 2018
