This project conceives the idea of transforming an underused incineration plant into a warm local resting place, by infusing people’s breath. Breath marks is a public art collaborative project at Doosan Elementary School in Doksan, Seoul. Jaechan Yang, the director  of Urban Society, and the artist Sun Choi proposed the idea of covering its façade with 3000 handcrafted tiles, that hold local people’s breaths, collected traces of blown inks. Eventually this visualized breaths become the incineration plant itself.
You can watch the whole process in this video.
