About

Don't ask questions, just try this!
I've never been a fan of enclosed spaces, silence, or the dark for that matter.
Inside this chamber, you become the sound.
You can hear your heart beating and lungs 
pumping.
My stomach is gurgling louder now.
I'm a nervous nelly with A ZILLION questions
(will I feel claustrophobic? will I be weirded out 
by what it is? what if I freak out and want to 
get out?) 
and I just relaxed and had an amazing time 
and left feeling...weightless.

The first couple minutes my mind was abuzz 
with random thoughts
but as I focused on my breathing, I became 
increasingly relaxed.

Like I'd just gotten a massage.
Like I’d just meditated.
Like I’d just slept for a day. 

And this is a very disorienting experience.
How did I end up naked in a stranger’s apartmentmentmentment?

To float in a dark space can be a leap of faith. 
As your eyes adjust you see things.
Maybe they aren’t even there. You don't have 
any cues. Any clues. 
You take away the perceptual cues that allow you to balance 
and manoeuvre. It’s our go to escape fantasy.
