Clay Bellows (2015-17)

University of Plymouth

 

After applying liquid Ball Clay to my torso I carried out consciously connected breathing for over an hour until the wet clay, applied to my skin, had dried out. During this process clay and breath became interdependent as a drying pattern nation of cracks, determined by the movement of my expanding chest, appeared in the clay.  The work was later developed into a live performance, where (as see above) documentation of my breathing was shown in relationship to my physical body.
