As an ominous voice guides us through Best Is Man’s Breath Quality, we are confronted by dense and complex images and sounds that appear and disappear before us. From primates engaging with their reflected selves to glowing jellyfish drifting through deep and dark oceans, our visual perception of the human figure is decentered, leaving only the grain of analog and digital voices recognizable to our senses.

This split screen version of Best Is Man's Breath Quality was created for an installation at The Kitchen (NYC) in 2017. A single channel version of Best Is Man's Breath Quality is also available.
