Subway Spa

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

For this project I created a 3d model of New York’s 34th Street subway station to help with planning and blocking of a public prank. I also created original graphics and props.

On a hot summer day, Improv Everywhere decided to transform 34th Street subway station into a spa. Passengers of the MTA were given free massages, served cucumber drinks and misted with water to cool down.

In preparation for the prank I took measurements of the station and created a digital 3d replica that was used for planning foot traffic and staging.

I also made magnetic signs that stuck to subway poles and drop down signs to change the station name from 34th Street to 34th Street Spa.
