A woman under sedation for a lung operation sinks inside her own unconscious. Made for Body Of Songs and Andreya Triana’s Branches Of Life (bodyofsongs.co.uk).

Andrea Triana chose the Lungs and was inspired by  observing a patient undergoing a bronchoscopy, hoping to breathe in a wide-open space again following her impending operation.

Once we started collaborating, I observed a lung operation which took my breath away. Inspired by this, I decided to turn the patient into a deep-sea diver, sinking in her own body and swimming through the lungs. Performed by Andreya Triana / Directed & Animated by Kat. Athanasopoulou.

Katerina Athanasopoulou’s work is presented in  collaboration with Video Art Miden.
