Elevator Shanty


Art Shanty Projects 2014 – White Bear Lake, MN
Northern Spark Festival 2014 – Minneapolis, MN

Elevator Shanty is a interactive elevator experience is a collaboration designed for Art Shanty Projects – a month-long outdoor winter art festival in the middle of a frozen lake. It was revived a second time for Northern Spark Art Festival.

It gives the appearance of a working elevator, complete with lights, buttons, vibrations, music and moving elevator doors – all controlled by an operator at a computer in the back room.

I was a part of teams working on designing, assembling, laser cutting control panels, programming, wiring, decorating, and user experience. During the festivals, I also ran the controls and interacted with the public as an elevator attendant.
