Twilight (image above, video below) by HeHe is another installation employing the users breath as physical interaction to trigger an event, in this case an audio-visual event. Users blow onto a paper propeller and this movement:

triggers a wave of light and sound across the otherwise dark space. The force of the propagated air dynamically determines the sound and light: a very soft blow will gently lead to one image change whilst a harder blow will carry a faster tide of images and light flow.

While the concept here is simpler than InfoBreath, the use of simple everyday materials e.g. paper cups as lanterns, is very effective in creating a reactive grid of ‘pixels’.

      To a certain extent, this kind of projects using dynamic breath and flowers reminds me of “Dandelions” installation I saw at Outsiders exhibition based in Paris 8-10 years ago:
