Breathing Wall

Breathing Wall by Najla El Zein is an interactive installation located at the entrance hall of a private residence in Beirut. It is a dynamic three dimensional wall surface composed of variable-sized diamond shaped modules with two facets, white and gold.

An installed mechanical and automation system allows the wall to transform itself into either an “all white” state, fading away within its surroundings, or imposing its presence by gradually rotating to a golden fiery texture.

The wall is alive where one can see it in motion, static and under an innumerable amount of compositions.
