The video is projected onto a sculpted three-dimensional rock like screen so that the sculptural form of the screen distorts the moving image. The content of the video shows a solo dancer, Carlie Angel, interacting with a landscape of large granite rocks and explores the fundamental comparison of form between the dancer and the rocks.

This model aims to give an understanding of the three dimensionality of the sculpted screen as it would be viewed in the a gallery space. When viewed in the gallery you can walk to the side of the screen and view the distortion it creates, online you can drag the model to see this distortion.

“Another spatial innovation is the three-dimensional, sculpted screen of “I Can Relate” by… Alison Currie who has created an experience so unique that it causes some viewers to do a double take.” Forrest, N 2015 Blouin Art Info
