Just Breathe (2013)

3 min 53 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

Feeling fearful or frightened?
just breathe
Maybe tired or fatigued?
just breathe
When in doubt, take a moment and
just breathe

"Breath is inherently connected with humanity, with animalia, with nature. It unites us with an element of similarity. Yet within contemporary western culture there is often a feeling of separateness and distance, a sense of hierarchy. By taking time to observe, to empathise with other living beings, we may begin to perceive the interconnected and interdependent nature of the world we live in."
