Latent is an installation-based work that explores the act of breathing, by looking at the biological interfaces in nature. Centered around a mechanical pneumatic system, the electrical signals regulate pumped air to travel through the walls of tubing, reaching breathing pistils, expanding and contracting in rhythmic pulses.

Through reproducing visual and biological systems through inanimate material, the work aims to explore the aesthetic interface of the flower. Subtly revealing their vastly complex, yet dynamic anatomical systems, circulating information in its efforts of life preservation. Quietly, both the analogy of the systems represented and ourselves observe the modes of communication nature takes on, materializing intangible currents.
