To Suspend the Breath

To Suspend the Breath

The red neon tubing of To Suspend the Breath pulsates in the corner of the stable block, requiring our attention like an outdated street sign.

Delineating the structure of an inverted pair of lungs, the double neon tubing throbs between inward and outward breaths.

It also clearly alludes to a tree oscillating between its bare branch and full-leaf form.
