For this project I was responsible for designing and building a conductor’s podium rigged with a hidden camera.
Improv Everywhere partnered with Carnegie Hall to set up an orchestra facing a podium in a park 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.
