This is a test piece from a larger bank of video footage made with patients experiencing a variety of illness and those they share their lives with. Quite simply you are asked to hold you breath with them and wait. The intensity of holding your breath until you cannot hold it anymore will provide a small insight into what they live with daily. Please note this is a low-resolution 1.5min clip, the main work is 11.5 minutes long. This work has been supported by The Arts Council England.
