“Breathing is… nice” is a project for CART 253C at Concordia University.  It was executed in Processing 3.1.

It is an interactive animation that takes the user through the steps of meditation through stress.  By clicking and pressing keys when prompted, the user creates a unique and compelling personal journey.

This piece comes from a place of winter stress and positive attainment. Only in our darkest hours do we feel the light.

Sequences include:

  • Feeling alone
  • Feeling crowded
  • Breathing deep
  • Going in; Growing up
  • Attaining alignment
  • A portal to you
  • Ego death
  • The crowd is freed
  • Eternal Meditation

I hope you enjoy this animation, and close the window feeling a little bit lighter on the earth.
