BREATHE is an immersive multi-sensory experience addressing the central challenge of re-imagining our relationship to the world we inhabit. Through the act of breathing, we constantly renew our relationship to an atmosphere that belongs to and unites all life on Earth; breath is a portal to the awareness of our fundamental entwined nature. BREATHE uses body movement, gesture, and breath (through biometric sensors) to immerse participants in the story of air. In doing so, BREATHE harnesses the power of augmented and virtual reality technologies to reconnect us to the world around us.
BREATHE premiered at Sundance Film Festival in the New Frontier Central exhibition. This multi-sensory experience was a Catalyst Magazine top pick.
Artist Diego Galafassi shares the inspiration behind BREATHE and describes how augmented reality opens up new possibilities for storytelling.
