Statement The Breathing Room is an inter-dimensional waiting room between our known world and a place of mystery. You've been here before while deliberating over a courtship or a breakup, anticipating travel plans, or apprehensively awaiting a doctor's appointment. Sometimes admittance beyond this interstitial room is swift, other times we wait interminably. Or perhaps we exercise our agency to facilitate our own initiation, exchanging a role of passivity for engagement.
