circulatory : respiratory : exhalation

acrylic and water on paper, 19x29cm each, 2018

Breath, so light, is often taken for granted.

Although breathing is circulated yet momentary, every inhalation and exhalation is different. I left evidence for the breath that once existed and vanished. Reproducing a single breath, with a material that goes through circulation gives emphasis on how breath has existed temporarily. By freezing water inside the structured mold, I can regenerate the same breath that I exhaled. Ice, placed on a thin layer of paper, will melt and eventually leave a trace on the surface.
