This piece is a contemplation, investigating commonalities and companionship among living beings. Blowers hidden inside the wall alternate to push quick puffs of air to the resting fabric forms. Each rayon shape inhales sharply, then slowly releases its breath. The two cloth bags lie together, inflating and deflating at their own individual rates.
