KIN will be taking over the Arnolfini for a long weekend with a multi-room extravaganza of music, conversations, games, skill-sharing and theatrical explorations, with activist meet-ups, live art and wandering provocateurs. Each of the six rooms has a full programme, and the spaces have been uniquely designed with participation and connection in mind. Please note that capacities are limited for each room, so please arrive early to your chosen sessions to guarantee entry.

«Symbiosis» is an interactive biofeedback installation. Two members of the audience sit opposite each other, wearing a sensor belt, which visualises breathing in form of light spirals inside a cosmic tunnel. When the spirals meet, they merge into one white light. In Symbiosis, the experience of art becomes a creative act of the participant, and technology, – a tool for intimate human connection. Symbiosis creates another form of communication, beyond language and inhibitions.
The installation is designed to guide participants to use slow diaphragm breathing, through the location of sensors and software response. Conscious deep diaphragm breathing has multiple physical benefits, including engaging the cerebral cortex stimulating evolved areas of the brain, rebalancing the autonomic nervous system, reducing heart rate and stimulating parasympathetic nervous system inducing calm and relaxed state. Conscious breathing is an ancient tool for expanding consciousness and transformative experiences. «Symbiosis» allows participants to have a beautiful experience of harmony, within themselves, and with another.
«Symbiosis» was created by Kira Zhigalina in collaboration with Adrian Godwin. Interactive Sound was created by Andrey Novikov.
