'In great architectural spaces, there is a constant, deep breathing of shadow and light; shadow inhales and illumination exhales light.' - Juhani Pallasmaa, 'The Eyes of the Skin'
Initially inspired by material gathered on the Beningbrough Hall project (see Projects), a new body of work emerged exploring ideas that buildings breathe through architectural light and shadow. Responding to light and shadow from around the home during lockdown, 'Drawing Breath' comprised a series of double sided drawings on translucent paper that interact with each other when activated by natural light in the space.
