Passing Hours, space in between: I am breathing your air

Passing hours, space in between: I am breathing your air is an installation featuring one or more self-breathing pillow(s) positioned on the floor. The pillow is made of handmade paper and equipped with battery operated motor.

The project is about being “transient, temporary, and vulnerable”. How can the condition of “being transient” be defined? Is it measured completely by the length of time physically spent in an unfamiliar geographic location? If the transient begins to feel settled and comfortable does that result in stability, which can feel curiously unstable?

Materials Used: handmade paper, thread, battery operated motor, fusible interfacing, shredded paper, vinyl tiles, lighting fixtures


Installation dimensions may vary.

Pillow Size: 20” x 26” x 6”
