Returning to the artist’s investigation of the body on screen, this large scale installation will ask the viewer to become responsive and physically involved in the work. By exploring the screen as a third party in a relationship between two people, or between the public and private self, the piece looks at ways of breaking down this vast digital space, by situating the audience at the centre of the work. 
Life sized dancers are projected into a purpose built space, seeking to establish a new definition of physical intimacy between the remote human and its flesh and blood counter-part.
