What does it mean to hold one’s breath?  Can someone or something else hold my breath? 454 breaths

brown papers, exhales, video projection  2020

I clench my teeth a lot 

I realized this when I also realized how often I hold my breath.

 

Is there any point 

That this is no longer a frame

I want everyone to time their pulse for one minute

Ready, go.

 

Suddenly the floor is now the floor and also the ceiling 

If you split everything in half are the top and bottom always the same 

Is a slit down our center a wall

Is this an act of transgression 

When was the first time you hated someone?


What does it mean to hold one’s breath?  Can someone or something else hold my breath? 454 breaths
