The piece focuses on human respiration to create and affect a bio-technological aural feedback system. Participants wear oxygen-type masks that transfer their breath to plastic tubing affixed to each mask. The other end of the tubing is attached to pressure sensors mounted in a project display enclosure. The sensors measure the inhalation and exhalation level of each participant, and this data is then used to generate and co-effect digital sound and video projections in the gallery space. The resultant audio and video observable by the participants, allowing them to create and be affected by the results of their collective bio-technical mechanisms. In this way, the piece will enact a dynamic sonic environment is at once artificial, electronic and digital; while simultaneously intrinsically linked with perhaps the most fundamental life-sustaining action: human breath.
