Film Stills from a performance “One Breath”
First time performed - Series consists of 6 photos
6”X10.5” each displayed in chronological order
In my pursuit of experiencing presence, I had been considering different methods of grounding. In this series, I film exactly one breath escape my lungs in its entirety while underwater in a pool. The entire performance takes around 10 seconds to complete before re-surfacing for air. The impermanence of each micro-moment felt quintessentially ephemeral. As a result, each millisecond of motion, each rising, undulating, quivering bubble becomes extremely attractive, almost rare.
