Interactive Installation, 2002
Breath portrays the vulnerability and impermanence of life through images of living things that appear to break apart, then reform, when blown. Visitors view a projection of a softly moving image of a dandelion. The surface contains a condenser microphone element that responds to different frequencies in human breath. If the visitor blows, the sensor is triggered, and dandelion seeds in the image will fly away. As the visitor continues to blow, the dandelion itself blows apart. New images appear in turn: a leaf, a flame, a child, each responding to the strength of breath.
