Carrie’s CDF project, GIANT FIX, was based on a unique personal pre-sleep phenomenon she had experienced during which the usual perception of scale, size, permanence, impermanence, and cognition was altered. Her research began with reading into perceptions and illustrations of space and time, as well as Cubism. The objective to undo singular perspective and simultaneously reveal a form from multiple perspectives seemed to indirectly relate to the perceptual experience she wanted to unravel and express - the common link being a compression of time. An exploration based on cubist principles – simultaneity, exposure, and multiplicity - generated idiosyncratic, specific movement which was brought into the final version of GIANT FIX. In the second stage of development, Carrie identified and explored four distinct features of the experience: impermanence, scale as infinite or atomic, simultaneity, and distance - while trying to sustain the wholeness and immediacy of the experience. An important aspect of the project was the visual/set design.
GIANT FIX was staged in a large, drained outdoor pool to create the sense of an infinite, vast field in which the figures moved. The premiere of GIANT FIX was in October 2005, outside in Hamlin Park Pool in Chicago. The Seldoms will be remounting GIANT FIX in September 2007.
