The installation depicts a landscape with living, luminous organisms and explores the influence this landscape has on its spectators. The kinetic sculpture consists of various, spherical textile ‘lungs’ that gently inhale and exhale air. These inhaling and exhaling ‘organs’ show a very natural movement in a continuous cycle. The installation explores the symbioses between the (artificial) organism and the (organic) spectator. By surrounding yourself with these artificial organisms you become aware of your own breathing tempo and slowly start to adapt to theirs; an effect that, you will find, calms you down.
