Prada is an interactive light installation that allows participants to control a sphere of LEDs with their breath. The brainchild of art director Mike Potter, it was realized by an incredibly dedicated team at B-Reel.

Prana was exhibited by the Fridman Gallery for six weeks in 2015, where it became the backdrop for a series of lectures and musical performances by Steve Roggenbuck, Stephen Vitiello and others.

The Sanskrit word “prana” refers to a cosmic life force the originates in the sun and enters the body through breath. In the act of breathing, we form a connection between ourselves and the universe.

Prana is a celebration of that connection and a meditation on the unseen energies of our bodies. The experience explores the relationship between breath and light, giving visitors the ability to visualize their energy through its impact on a sphere of 13,221 individual LEDs.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Prana took nine months  to realize and was designed, modeled, fabricated and coded  almost entirely  by members of the studio.
