In the silence of sleep you are able to disconnect and let go. But where do you go in this state? Is a deeper understanding created with your experiences or are you withdrawn from them? Perhaps they aren’t always as first considered. Through slumber, moments in time can be erased, heightened or altered to reflect memory or mark the present. To Hold Your Breathe (Is to Hold Time) has been developed through consideration of personal sleep patterns and the mediative notions of breath, space and time. Concerned with the connections we make with those and the space around us, this work investigates rest and dream like states as solutions to silencing surroundings; allowing an internal solace to be reached from the increasingly loud landscape and reflection on these moments to shape personal experience. Breathe in there is silence. Breathe out and you are whole again.
