Between Breaths (capturing disappearance) : FAITH JOHNSON

Between Breaths (capturing disappearance)
Space Other, Boston, MA 2008 (duration 15 hrs)

Sometimes I feel myself disappearing…becoming so small that I am
overwhelmed by feelings of powerlessness, and all I can do is breathe.

It is in these moments that I begin to find strength in the persistence of breath. During the exhibition I capture my breath by blowing into a clear plastic sphere. Throughout the exhibition the sphere gradually fills the gallery with my presence as it expands and takes shape from over 3,000 breaths. At the end of the exhibition the collected breath is released in a long exhale with the help of audience participation. By catching this breath I am able to understand it as a force and extension of presence, filling up the spaces that my flesh cannot.
