Humidity In Our Breath. Preservationists clench at the thought. When we sit in a car with the windows rolled up, we witness the humidity in our breath through the fogged windows and condensation rolling down the glass.
It’s a weird thing to think of our breath generating humidity, affecting atmosphere, like a rainforest, and yet, it’s completely scientific. You can measure it by using the ExhaleCondensation Calculator linked here: http://www.sciencebits.com/ExhaleCondCalc
And still, humidity in our breath slips into weirder psychological spaces. For instance, humidity in our breath is used to detect if we are still alive, when a stranger holds up an eyeglass lens or mirror to our mouths.
The show’s selected pieces from the following artists, are each unto its own a psychological experience between the real and surreal.
