Atmos Anima

A person who recently underwent a lung transplantation was invited to congeal a series of her breaths into blowing glass shapes; each shape being a conclusion of respiration. For a long time a person’s breath has been the ultimate definition of life, but when the source of breathing does not stagnate upon dying, does life go on?

Sculpture. Six blowing glass shapes, transplanted breath. Various sizes.

Many thanks to Babette Ketelaar van Daal, for sharing her breath.
