In Situ was a site specific performance work created for the Chicago Cultural Center's interior courtyard. The 55 ft. tall dress could be seen from multiple vantage points within the building simultaneously, including a variety of perspectives through windows on different floors. The dress, made from polyester ripstop fabric, remained outdoors in the courtyard for the month of October in celebration of Chicago Artists Month during which time it was activated by multiple performances.
