Marking Breath. Bornholm.18 June 2016.

‘At times we think we know ourselves in time, when all we know is a sequence of fixations in the spaces of the being’s stability – a being who does not want to melt away, and who, even in the past, when he sets out in search of things past, wants time to “suspend” its flight. In its countless alveoli space contains compressed time. That is what space is for.’
Gaston Bachelard. The poetics of space.

I have started to invite the visitors to join me and in this way gather around the act of breathing.
