This air moving machine hums steadily as it forces air in and then out, like working lungs of this living, breathing building. Drawing attention to the vents and their hidden mechanisms gives notice to the creative force that fills the building during Artfields. One is asked to pause for a moment and notice the hum. Stand close and experience the calm in the whirling mix of energy and sound that the artists and viewers create. Breathe in. Breathe out. You are a part of the exchange.


Artists Statement

There is a playfulness in this site specific installation that invites viewers to make their own discoveries.

The installation consists of vinyl gallery style lettering adhered to the wall above the existing air vents in the ROB Building. These simple words coax the viewer to consider the vents they would otherwise pass by. ¬†Drawing attention to the vents and their hidden mechanisms gives notice to the creative force that fills the building. One is asked to pause for a moment and notice the hum. The artist’s intent is to promote conversation. With minimal explanation the artist is asking the viewer to think, to consider, if only for a moment, to take in this experience, to breath in this art and life.
