Conduct Us

Client: Improv Everywhere
Production Company: Deverge
Role: design / fabrication

For this project I designed and built a conductor’s podium rigged with a hidden camera.

Improv Everywhere partnered with Carnegie Hall to set up an orchestra in midtown Manhattan. Random pedestrians were invited to conduct the musicians via a sign that read “Conduct Us”.

The podium had to be very sturdy since the public was going to use it all day while remaining portable and elegant. I created 3d plans to work out the structural design, camera placement and iterate aesthetic elements before construction.
