Respire is an immersive virtual environment manipulated by the pulse of a participant’s breath that provokes and challenges an interaction between a user and the substantial element of the environment: water. Minimalistic symbiotic play is supported by a reactive musical agent that generates sound through the interaction between a agent and the user. The behaviour and aesthetic quality of sound and visuals are the result of the system's decisions, as long as the participant is consent, present, and breathes.
