Tucked into a small gallery space in downtown Manhattan, there’s a big ball of light that knows how you breathe.
A product of international creative agency B-Reel, the installation PRANA uses radar sensors to track your breathing patterns, and using a simple software backend, translates the rhythm of your breathing into a pulsating light show.
Building on that ethos of open technology, they have released a public code editor, so anyone can program their own lightshow to run on the PRANA installation. PRANA is currently on display at the Friendman Gallery on 287 Spring Street in Manhattan until August 7th. In addition to the gallery’s normal hours, they are also hosting periodic performances inside of the sculpture.
