Breath Exchange (2017)
Collaborative art installation created by Jacklyn Brickman, Katherine Moore, Lynn Kim, and Axel Cuevas
Art and Tech Show, Ohio State University
Large scale, inflatable, mylar walnuts expand and contract their breadth, in a movement of timed inflation. The breath and breadth of these walnuts morph the gallery into an otherworldly, myth-like place. Utilizing space blankets, ventilation fans, flexible duct and invisible tape used as a means of sewing, the breadth of a walnut is a culmination of research and exploration derived from the sensation of breathing, black walnuts, science fiction, hot air ballooning, space, mythology, ideals of comfort, and the future.
