Close (2021) is an installation of balloons, each one holding the breath of a stranger. The audience participates by adding a balloon and sharing their breath. Over time, the balloons deflate, filling the enclosure with a collective breath, a trace of all the participants.
The work prompts reflection on our changed relationship with the breath, proximity to others, and the difficulty or danger of being together. It concludes with an interactive audience engagement around a key question – ‘will you come closer?’
