For Exchange two participants wear belts that fit around the diaphragm. Moving into the installation space they are aware that their breathing patterns are controlling the intensity of two sets of lights. The participants become both the performers and the audience, communicating by respiration. The reciprocal relationships between the physical and the ethereal; the internal and external inform Maclachlan’s work. In Exchange he explores a sense of stretch as the tension between physical sensations and external stimulation are expanded and amplified.
