Between Breaths is situated in a hazy landscape where the boundaries between the waking world and dreamworld blur, creating a space to explore the depths of our psyche. Drawing on Jungian theory, this project is grounded in the concept of individuation.
At the core of this journey lies the confrontation of the shadow—the darker aspects of ourselves that we hide, reject and disown. Jung also introduces the archetypes of the anima and animus, which represent the unconscious feminine and masculine aspects of our psyche. After the confrontation of the shadow, integration of the anima and animus becomes possible, where both the light and dark aspects of our identity merge.
Between Breaths invites the viewer to explore our shadow selves, facilitating the process of inner acceptance and awareness. The project comprises two components—animated stills and print, with a colour palette that symbolically differentiates them as light and dark.
