DescriptionBreath of Life is an interactive real-time biofeedback experience in which the user's breath is turned into a sonification and visualization. The sonification and visualization of the user's physiology is realized through custom parameter-mapping algorithms. Individuals simply place a phone equipped with an accelerometer on their stomach and breathe. The acceleration information is transmitted to the computer via wifi and the algorithms generate a sonification and visualization of the breath. This biofeedback is intended to enable user mindfulness, fitness and breath control.
