All I Want Is To Breathe

Shinden Studio, Japan.                          April 2020 ~ July 2021

All I Want Is To Breathe is the project title for a series of works exploring enclosed spaces.The process involves the construction of temporary physical structures supplemented with stop motion sequences and video documentation, to help expand the concept of the works.

"All I want is to breathe, won't you breathe with me?" is a line from the the song 'Born under punches' from the Talking Heads album Remain in Light.

In the context of the Covid 19 pandemic, being confined or restrained while assessing future options and priorities under the shadow of mortality, this line from the song seems an appropriate title for this research.

Unless otherwise stated, all soundtracks composed by Eskimo Quinn
