Breath




2009 has been a year of recuperation and regeneration. Due to the recession a number of projects disappeared and a number of ideas did not get funding. One of the ideas was BREATH a simple looped film of a breaking wave, made in collaboration with Andy Mackinnon at Taigh Chearsabhagh in North Uist. We wanted to project this film very large onto either Battersea power station, or Tate Modern during one night in December at the start of The Copenhagen Climate Change Summit. Firstly Tate said "no you can't, not on our building". To project onto Battersea for one night would have been very expensive and even with a small team working on it, we failed to get any funding. The Scottish Parliament were interested, but again; no funding, We even looked at powering the film by bicycles, and moving around the city as a kind of guerilla event, but sadly it wont happen.

However the film is made and Andy and I are looking to make it into an indoor work, powered by a rowing machine. It must be possible to do, so if there is anyone who can help us, please get in touch.

Such a delight to see you show up in my rss feed again! Reading about your work makes me feel very alive when I am stuck doing dull work. Best of luck with this latest!

Hi CHris, your BREATH project sounds like a grand plan indeed and should it develop further - it would be great to help out if it would be of any use.
I am actually preparing a seminar at the moment for the 28th on how Land Artists especially have responded to the concept of time and its course. It is part of and Art and Context module in the University of Greenwich Landscape Architecture MA course. Your Antarctica series especially the echogram work is of great interest to me in this regard and I will be talking about it within the discussion.
I saw you speak about it during the 'Wilderness' seminars in Kent last year - hence how I knew about your work. If indeed there are any other works by others that you find inspiring concerning the role of time / theories of entropy / chaos theory for example then I would appreciate if you could reply with any names / projects for me to investigate.
And in the future if anything works out with the BREATH project and a pair of hands would be useful then by all means let me know.
Have a good one
from DAN

Hello,

Your work has been inspiring to me over the years.
For BREATH could I suggest you might look at http://www.illuminatingyork.org/index.html
for lighting the Minster or other historic building and flooding york with your Breath which in a year where tsunamis have been devastating countries seems appropriate. There is The ouse in york which floods regularly and many rowers. If need be I can put you in contact with the york city rowing club too. Catherine.scriven@hotmail.co.uk
