This was an interactive event for Youtube and its’ influencers at the Rebel nightclub. We created several opportunities to snap the best selfie. Participants entered through the light tunnel, 10 ground supported steel frames with LED and aluminum extrusion. The Thrill Seeker is a bike in a perpetual wheelie. This is an example of a client’s request leading to some creative problem solving. The rear inner tube was replaced with a heavy gauge steel bent tube. It was welded to the frame and to a steel plate hidden beneath the scenic flooring. The pink room also gave us some creative license to build fun and durable props.
