Meet the Maker: Tarraing anáil


Tarraing anáil invites you to rethink the most natural of all tasks: breathing. Step into the darkness and become the composer of your very own personal sound and light show. This intensely intimate bodily function is amplified by a smart corset, that unlike other corsets, allows you to breathe fully. It is embedded with electronics including sensors and fibre optics. The respiratory breath sensors measure your breathing behaviour and translate it into sound and light.
