I think breath is breathing in all
of our environment, and
breathing out our sense through our bodies.
In this work, I inflate several hundred gloves with people. Once
I release an inflated glove on the floor, it mixes with many others.
Mine becomes others. Others become no ones. You can
sense other's. Its sense could be unforgettable.
Since graduating from Cardiff School of Art in 1997 Hiromi Shirais

Foundation in London, Japanese Embassy, Paris, and venues throughout
South East Asia. She recently participated in several exhibitions
in Tiawan. Sharai has also produced festivals and events in her
