Only My Breathing

– – – – – – – – – – – – – –
The light is so weak,
I cannot see.

My throat is so dry,
I cannot speak.

Your voice – is so low,
I cannot hear.

And it is only my breathing that reminds me I’m still here.

The apprehension that I felt at first,
melts into the thought,
‘…well, it could be worse…’

These fears, I’ve felt, for such a long time,
are not for the living, they’re only for the dying.

And it is only my breathing that reminds me I’m still here.

This short work comes from a recurring dream.
I hope your dreams are more pleasant.

‘Only My Breathing’ is an excerpt from ’26 Suicides’.

26 Suicides is a 27 chapter, non-narrative new media art work.

**26 Suicides was initially designed to use surround sound and multi channel video to deliver an enveloping, synesthetic experience. 26 Suicides is currently being remixed as a virtual reality art experience.**

It is the personal and intimate testimony of my synesthetic life. The 26 Suicides installation uses 10 audio (surround) sound channels and 8 video channels to deliver an enveloping, synesthetic experience. The videos here on Vimeo are excerpts. They are single channel video with stereo audio, offering a taste of the installation.

Watch them if you are not afraid of dangerous modern art.

The compression on Vimeo has squished most of the goodness out of this work, if you are interested, ask me about getting the high-res version.
