Exhale-In, 2014

The eight octagonal cardboard columns, sheathed in a latex skin, contract under the direction of the domestic vacuum cleaners, until they are sixty centimetres in length. Once the motor has cut out, the columns slowly expand downwards to a length of six metres, revealing their concertina structure beneath the latex. The continual expansion and contraction of the eight columns repeats itself in a loop, one rising under the suction of the vacuum cleaner while others fall under the force of gravity.
