Breaths is an interactive multimedia performance that explores the ways in which technology can be used to foster creative environments. Incorporating personal smart devices with the Moori system, Breath breaks down the barriers between a performance and audience and a spontaneous, communal work of art is gradually constructed. Visuals, sounds, and improvisation all combine to entertain and intrigue, while inspiring active participation. With Breaths, “performance” is redefined and the isolation often associated with our current modes of communication and entertainment is transcended.

About Moori

Moori, an interactive collaboration environment where users participate in a real‑time narrative. Using mobile technologies and network systems, members express their ideas through instant messaging and sketches using their personal devices. Through the Moori system, audience participation is visualized and reproduced aurally. As a result, Moori allows users to become anonymous authors of an interactive storytelling experience and a unique, dynamic and algorithmic audio/visual performance.
