Your Breath Holds Me Above the Water : FAITH JOHNSON

Your Breath Holds Me Above the Water
Bordering the Invisible, SMFA, Boston MA 2007

There is a blow up pool full of water. I ask people to fill plastic bags with their breath and pin them to my clothes. I tell them that I would like to see if their breath could keep me above the water. Many hands cover me with pockets of breath…they become my outer lungs. I test these efforts and find that I can float…I am held by the collective breath…I hug their gifts lovingly to my body…for safety…for comfort. And when the water becomes too cold and I cannot release the air quickly enough--hands come to my aid and I am released from the moment’s end.
