Choreographer Deborah Lohse's site-specific installation, was conceived as a durational performance piece, wherein I constructed a dress made of chandelier crystals while she or a group of dancers executed movement culled from fashion ads and editorials. We staged the piece in three different site-specific environments in Martha's Vineyard, Newport Rhode Island, and New York City. The work addresses the subjective experience of glamour and beauty, and the influence that they have upon individuals and communites. Each incarnation of the project incorporated the surrounding landscape of the performance, integrating the participation of community performers and facilities unique to the location of the performance. Below, you'll find images from the preparation process for the piece.

I contributed illustrations for the chapters that took place in the 50's and the 20's. Click through the images to purchase a copy on Amazon.
