Upstate ACE in Action

Breathing Lights


In October and November of 2016, Breathing Lights illuminated the windows of hundreds of vacant buildings in Albany, Schenectady and Troy, with a warm light that mimicked the gentle rhythm of human breathing. Breathing Lights was a winner of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge, which engages mayors to collaborate with artists on developing innovative public art projects that enrich communities and attract visitors.

Working with dozens of community and private-sector partners, Breathing Lights included eight months of programming and events, including youth media projects, building reclamation clinics, community arts presentations, gallery talks, policy discussions and more. At the end of the installation, windows – one by one – fell dark. In sharing a sense of loss comes a stir to action for those in the Capital Region.
