On a white pedestal, protected by a glass cover, rests a delicate, glass vial. A brass plate bears in heavy letters the title „My Breath -12.10.2009 / 11:23-11:24“ A breath-out, a breath-in. The result of the traditional glass blowing technique is a straight, fist-sized inconspicuous vessel that captures nothing less than the quintessence of human existence in its split-second becoming and passing. The imprint of breath frozen in the hot glass.
