Description

Present is a participatory installation that guides users to feel the power of their breath. According to research, international students have a greater likelihood to experience anxiety, isolation, and depression. Deep breathing and group participation has been found to be an effective way to relieve these symptoms. Using the culturally-appropriate symbol of a school of fish moving in harmony, Present is a participatory installation that invites participants to experience each others' presence as a gift or present.
