What does it mean to breathe freely?
I think about air, about suffocation, about different types of breath. Air, clean air, dirty air, masks, moisture behind a mask, nurses in scrubs, a knee on a man’s neck, the way air can be taken from somebody. Breath accumulates, I think about this simple act of breathing, we do it everyday, every second, this breath is our life, it belongs to us, it is life itself. It can be taken away. Here is my body, my ribcage, my lung, how does this lung work? How can I pay attention to this action, to the significance of this action?
Each day inside the box the complexity of this simple action expands and contracts. Safety – lack of safety, freedom – suffocation, health – illness. Repeating this action endlessly until we die, breathing in, breathing out. Breath is an invisible action, breath is everything.
