Green, clean, fresh, alive! ... here and now! ... let it be tomorrow!
The installation "Breathe" is inspired by Nature, this wealth accessible to people, which is a condition and warranty for our complete human development and existence. Designed for the old fire-tower and realised in green color, symbolizing ecology, growth, freshness, life and fertility.
The installation turns the dynamics and energy of the wind through the use of swastika and balancing elements, enthusiasm, willingness and why not, optimism.
Using 280 green windmills, intuitively and actively, it aims to attract our attention to remind us of our unbreakable connection to Nature.
280 green children’s windmills of polypropylene, Yellow Spray, screws and wooden slats.
Children from the family-type accommodation shelter, kids and youth from the town who participated in the construction of the windmills, wrote their desires and painted drawings on them.
With the invaluable support of the Municipality of Samokov and the fire brigade of the city.
