Respiratory Organs is a technologically mediated installation piece in which a participant’s breath and heartbeat are used to generate sounds from various sound sculptures. My aesthetic intention behind this piece is to bring focus to the body of the performer/participant. More specifically, this piece is an attempt to highlight the physiological processes essential to being alive; processes that are in flux, and to which we have only partial conscious control over. By extending these forces outside of the body and representing their rhythm and intensity both visually and sonically through various structural objects in three-dimensional space, new spatiotemporal relationships are formed in which the participant is able to ‘plug themselves into’ and embody their surroundings. Filmed during lockdown by Harrison Reid. October 2020.
