Although it may not look like it, but the 'Breath of Life' art installation is not a immobile piece of decor. Moving as gracefully and precisely as a ballerina, it works with one's breath in order to become animated.

Created by artist Fraser Ross, Breath of Life was made using Flexinol, which is a type of wire that remembers its form even after being distorted. Mimicking the growth of plants, it only moves when you breathe into the belljars.
