Originally executed at Wesleyan College’s artist work shop, Spiritus Lenus (smooth breathing) is comprised by several yarn walls and highlights the nature’s beauty and an importance of its sustainability. Spiritus Lenus is a term used to highlight the breath/pronunciation of a word. The installation hopes to do just that – create an aesthetic breath in the middle of the Atlanta BeltLine.
