Breath Bricks

The brick is an object that to me expresses the fundamental difference in atmosphere between Malmö and Seoul. In Malmö the brick is exposed as a modular element of architecture, in Seoul the brick is concealed by modern materials. Produced as a module without character, the brick inspired me to subvert its anonymous nature. I made 108 translucent bricks, one per day, of the lightest weight polythene available, given shape by the volume of my own breath.
