According to certain
schools of Eastern
philosophy, living
creatures, including
humans, are (re)born with
each breath inhaled and
they die with each breath
they exhale. This cyclic
quality remains
characteristic from the first
breath they take to the
last.
In our public video and
sound installation, we
remind the recently
renewed, urban
environment (Dezső
Baltazár Square) of its
ancient self. We evoke
memories in the urban
space that may be false,
but may also be true.

Image
The five dominant windows
of MODEM Centre for
Modern and Contemporary
Arts are used as a
longitudinal screen to
project upon. The image -
projected from inside the
building - shows nature,
the horizon of the
Hortobágy. The image is
pulsating slowly and
sedately, like human
breath, from sharp to
blurred, then back.

Sound
The Audio SpotlightR
system makes it possible
for sounds, of even
considerable volume, to be
heard only in a definite
strip of space, unlike they
normally would. When
spectators step outside
this "sound pipe", they
hear nothing of the
recording. The special
speakers play a recording
mixed from the natural
sounds and rhythms of the
Hortobágy and of
breathing. The distance of
the speakers is
appropriate to an average
pedestrian's speed (5
km/h) and rhythm of
breathing
