Design Week Portland Dancers In The Park

Playful interaction where you least expected it.

For Design Week Portland 2014, Sticky was invited to create a temporary installation to celebrate Lawrence Halprin, designer of the internationally acclaimed Portland Plazas. Describing his vision for the park series as “a choreographed sequence of open spaces,” Halprin’s designs were influenced by his wife, Anna, a passionate choreographer and dancer. Inspired by this insight, Sticky transformed eight of Pettygrove Park’s lollipop lampposts into ‘dancers.’ Combining wood, fabric and motors, we adorned each lamppost with a dress-like dance costume that twirled suddenly and spontaneously to the delight of passersby.
