Eupnea

2020W

Today’s world feels increasingly hectic leaving us with less time for introspection and for mentally caring about ourselves. This leads to a sense of disconnection and loss of our true selves.
.
To address this deficit EUPNEA was created — an interactive installation that is meant to help people find a deeper connection to themselves through listening to acoustic variations of their breathing rhythm. The installation consists of 12 copper tubes that form a cylindric space. One enters the space wearing headphones and a microphone that enables hearing one’s breath amplified in real time. When a tube is touched, a sound effect appears that manipulates the breath, and with each tube touched, a different, novel version of one’s own personal breath is created.
.
This project challenges people to look more closely at what their way of breathing is telling them about themselves and their emotional state.
