Breathing Under Water is a multi-media installation by the Haligonian artist Glynis Humphrey. It provides an array of acoustic, tactile and visual stimuli, but contains no verbal components. At floor level, acoustically active inflatables invite touching as well as listening. Overhead, a monumental video projection depicts the floating draperies and repetitive movements of a woman who is submerged in water.
