Stay With Me: Membranes of a Space and Time

Tuesday, May 13, 2014 to Friday, May 16, 2014
Hopkins Hall Gallery


Reception:
Thursday, May 15 @ 3 - 4PM

Stay With Me: Membranes of a Space in Time is a participatory installation of individuals' breath.


From the Artist Nayeon Yang: 


"Would you like to donate your breath?" When I meet people on the street, on a bus, at a bar, etc, I ask him or her to blow up a balloon and write his or her name on a tag to tie to the balloon. Eventually, I bring their breathes within the balloons to the gallery and freely set them on the floor. In the space, a viewer meet those people's residues shaped in an equivalent volume and weight without their information and physical presence. The balloons are wandering as the viewer is walking around the space. Some balloons will burst and begin to sag as time passed. I am hoping to make our ephemeral lives present together through this installation project.
