About Christopher Lin: Breathing Room 

Humans do not need to actively breathe. We breathe automatically, sucking in and exchanging air unconsciously throughout our lives. Breathing room is a room for breathing. It is a rest stop from our automated respiration--a space to practice conscious inhalation and exhalation.
