To The Sound of Your Own Breathing is about letting go and pushing away. It’s the opportunity to see the world (literally) from a new perspective, and redefine the scale of your existence. It is a curated series of extraordinary visual moments trapped in the stillness of space, best experienced with the endless, gentle rasp of breathing in your ears.
Invited by Opaque Media to collaborate artistically, I was asked to produce a pre-release set of photographs in Earthlight VR—a virtual reality spacewalk experience outside of the International Space Station—to celebrate the game’s near completion.
The camera provided in-game is an authentic representation of what NASA astronauts would use in space. It is a stick-mounted, fixed, wide-lens digital camera, held in one hand at a distance, and connected by a cable to the midsection of the astronaut’s suit.
Special thanks to Opaque Media for the opportunity to collaborate with them. Visit www.earthlightvr.com or follow @OPXSpace for more details on their VR experiences.
