Chorus of Lungs

In the interactive video installation Chorus of Lungs, Tulip Theory (Leila Sujir & Maria Lantin) explore the social body, its voice and breath through 3D video and audio projections. Sounds of breathing ebb and flow, a chorus of lungs floats in the gallery, sharing a space with the viewer. The viewer is invited to make a gesture with their hands—pushing the hands together, then pulling the hands apart, actions which compress or create a space for the lungs to become a chorus both visually and audibly. Somewhere between the individual and the chorus, the social body and the physical body, this Tulip Theory installation reveals a physicality that invokes a fragile yet tensile strength.
