‘take a deep breath’ is an interactive art & sound installation that alleviates anxiety & pent-up stress by tapping into our senses. intended as a safe space, it allows us to reflect on our memories & emotions while isolated from the pressures of everyday life.

the experience features a computer-generated rain animation, meant to be projected on a wall in a dark 12 x 12’ room. a blend of synthesized chords and heavy rain plays in the background, while a circle gives deep breathing cues by expanding & contracting in sync with the music. the colors, volume, and intensity of the experience can all be controlled by raising & lowering your hands over two pillars (represented here by mason jars).

« how does it work? »
the visuals are drawn in p5.js: a javascript library for creative coding. two photoresistors, one embedded in each pillar, detect the shadow of a hand passing over and send this data to an arduino uno. the microcontroller then communicates with p5.js over a local server. the p5 sketch runs full-screen in your web browser, which can be displayed on a wall/screen by a projector.
