This series of sculptures utilizes artificial breathing mechanisms to simulate perfectly the natural rise and fall
of a resting breath. Encased within dead or moribund everyday objects, there is no sound except for the
materials, moving against themselves. The works were developed over a 7 year period, with engineering partner technology from Machine Shop [film industry], Bosch & Rolls Royce [auto] and NASA & Maxon Motors [aerospace].
The breathing sculpture 'Guide' received the international Celeste Prize in 2009. From 2010 to 2020 the artwork has been traveling globally with the international exhibition "Zur Nachahmung Empfohlen / Examples to Follow!".
