Breather exploits a rarely used stereoscopic technique to immerse the viewer in a mesmerising scene of desperation that appears to take place within the water-filled confines of a rusty steel-plate box. It is part sculpture, part film and part optical illusion. Its cyclical, mantra-like narrative counterpoints human frailty with human tenacity.
Two pairs of steel and glass eye-ports offer the only visible access to the interior.
