(CCA) | Cloud Mirror
Are you the same person that you were 10 years ago, a year ago, or even a day ago? How can we, as ever-changing beings, reorient ourselves to every passing moment? Cloud Mirror is a video installation that projects “reflections” of the viewer, both in the past and present, where time is controlled by the viewer’s breath. After a year of living through a pandemic, breathing, and the monitoring of breath, have become a symbol of death and oppression. I wanted to liberate the act of breathing, inviting participants to use their breath as a tool to observe, reflect, and “draw” themselves in a real-time installation experience. Cloud Mirror asks for participants to give attention to breath and slowly observe and communicate with their past self through body movements.
