Johnson grass, grow light, DMX board, fan, plastic, wood, projection


In Breath, my brother's respiration pattern while having an apnea was translated into the varying brightness of an LED grow light and used to nourish a patch of wild grasses. The plants grew under this wavering light from germination onward, showing surprising resilience for the abnormality. The projection on the wall shows me trying to do the same thing. I plugged my bedroom lamp into the system and tried to fall asleep breathing in sync with his rhythm. My body appears and disappears with the light while my rib cage swells and falls, slightly out of sync. I am unable keep the pace.
