On Breathing 1:20 (video excerpt)

This video excerpt is from a work I made upon my return from a residency program in Tokyo last August.  Unable to speak the language with any effect I realized the experience of gaining information in a sensory manner, a kind of cultural osmosis. On Breathing is a response to blending into the atmosphere in Japan.  The audio track is from Liquid Air, composed by Meredith Monk who often uses organic sound,  as a way of communicating beyond words.  I found that Liquid Air was an apt articulation of  my experience of breathing in the culture of Japan.  This work was exhibited in December in one of the exhibitions celebrating the  125th Anniversary of the Kansas City Art Institute.
