I can relate is a video dance work which premiered as part of 24 Frames Per Second at Carriageworks Sydney. 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.
UNTITLED appropriates the absurd, spontaneous facial choreography videos that Byron Perry and Antony Hamilton have been filming on their mobile phone cameras and sending each other over the past decade. Filming the responses of viewers to these low-fi exchanges, Perry and Hamilton present the resulting footage as a dual-channel projection. Keyboards positioned in front of each projection effectively hand the editing process over to the audience. As they play the keyboard, each tone influences the part of the footage from which the playback begins, crafting rhythmic, hyper-edited facial choreography with its own musical score. The installation is an attempt to place the participants in a situation where they can be swept up in the ridiculousness and sublime joy of unbridled creativity.
