    Abstract

    In the city life with increasingly advanced technology, sociality tends to be more subtle. Although people, who have remote interpersonal intimacy, can watch or hear from each other, they cannot feel the real emotions from the other party. Especially, breath means existence in intimacy, and it is conductive to soothing emotion. This paper proposed a pair of interactive breathing sofa systems to communicate with each partner’s breath tempo in real time. Also, the shared semi-virtual space and telepresence are established to enhance the emotional exchange and resonance in long-distance relationship. Each sofa can measure the user’s breathing tempo and send it to the partner’s sofa. In addition to strengthening emotional communication of long-distance relationship, the installation aims to design and realize the enhancement of remote emotional interaction, bio-signals communication, telepresence, and telepathy of ExtraSensory Perception.
