auto.public - dance performance

st.mark’s on the bowery 2002

Auto.public is a performance installation in
collaboration with choreographer Mark
Michael Gottlieb, and fashion designer Lisa Lee.

The goal for auto.public was to create an
environment that was static but perceptually
reorganized itself using the dancers as focal
points to shift the audience’s perspective. The
designs of the objects or columns were derived
from an anthropomorphic relationship to the
dancers and choreographic process. Not only
did they represent the individual dancer, but
related in size and mass to duets, trios, and
quartet. In addition, articulated datum built
into wooden surfaces corresponded to various
landmarks of the body such as shoulder height,
eye level, hip height, and ankle height.
