    “Breath” is a multi-media installation based on radio drama. What and where the person in the radio drama is doing can be traced through 10ch sound installed around the space.
    The story starts with a person failing to escape the room. Audience hear his/her every move.
    Imaginary space created from sound-illustrated situation combined with radio drama can be understood as a metaphor for psychological-emotional space.
    Simultaneously the space functions like a theater stage to the audience. They are encouraged to imagine situations or even be an actor/actress on the stage from installed performance sounds.
