Breath Vessels draws attention to the very physical and creative nature of the life-sustaining ritual of breathing. Visitors to the installation are invited to breathe into a small ceramic shell. As they exhale, a 3D model is generated onscreen in realtime, reflecting the shape of their breath. These forms can later be 3D printed in clay, PLA, or other materials, or turned into molds for slipcasting ceramic. More at jennyfilipetti.com.
