Breathing Room – A Private Viewing

This event is part of Creative Responses to Climate Change, an evening of creative sharing and topical conversation.

Enjoy a private viewing and let the magic of Breathing Room enfold you with its soft light and the creaking and whirring sound of 28,000 cones slowly breathing in … and out … and in … and out …

Breathing Room by Milton Keynes-based artist Anna Berry is an immersive, walk-in kinetic light installation that perfectly combines organic and machine elements, creating a unique sensory experience.

Powered by an outer mechanical skeleton, Breathing Room invites you into a gently illuminated tunnel lined with 28,000 cones that ‘breathe’ like a living organism.

Anna Berry is an artist whose work is frequently shown in non-gallery environments. Anna works in a great variety of media, but especially with paper because of its fragile and ephemeral nature. “I love to reach audiences who might not have had much experience with or interest in art installations,” explains Anna. “I think Breathing Room will appeal to a wide selection of visitors, whether their interest is in arts, wellbeing, engineering – or whether they just like to be amazed and surprised by new and unusual experiences!”

During the evening of our Creative Responses & Climate Change network gathering, Breathing Room will be exclusively open for those attending.

Breathing Room is open to the rest of the public 10am – 4pm everyday from Saturday 23 – Saturday 30 October.

Creative Responses to Climate Change will run on Thursday 28th October, 4 pm – 8 pm.

Breathing Room will be open throughout the evening to those attending the event.
