Breathscape is a series of re-imagined landscape made with breathing human stomachs. We find shapes of human body in landscape; could we find landscapes in our bodies by closing up? What is it like to see breathing stomachs of all kinds side by side and to frame them as a whole breathing landscape? As a process, I have been recording breathing stomachs of all status, age and race including pregnant women. Each individual’s stomach forms either mountain or valley with her own breathing cycle, which unavoidably reflects the effect of my presence with a camera and intimacy of the recording itself. This is the first composed piece of the series.
