Experiencing Curtis's art fest is a very personal event. Everybody's response may be different, determined by the level of comfort with one's body, especially its taking up space, and by how we react to touch, spatial constrictions, or darkness. My own reactions unrelated to the spatial experience included momentary attachments of a proprietary kind and murmurs of rebellion.

As we connect with the work, our sense of displacing and traversing three-dimensional and energetic space sharpens. We physically and psychologically feel the dimensions of descent, breadth, inversion, expanse, direction, intrusion, enclosure, and capacity.
