:: short by Mike McSweeney :: depicting one of, if not the last night of the Night Heron Speakeasy :: during the eight week run, the water tower hosted a tamer, seated evening of cocktails and live music, rather than the rowdy atmosphere of this closing party :: spending months building and developing this project with Nathan, Myric and Ida - the concept derived from someone living in a dry water tower - Nathan, after seeing this came up with a bar concept; from there we all banded together to develop, build and evolve the magical but temporary place :: together we developed the look, layout and structure of the event; implementing a gifted ticket system that allowed guests to pass this experience along :: this system resulted in a wide range of attendees and reactions :: the months of collaborative development and build were beautiful and strange - the abandoned building it perched atop has since been demolished ::

leading the design, aesthetics, fabrication && installation of infrastructure within elaborate illicit experiences :: many went undocumented such as the FoST confessional booths, Kickstarter suitcase bar, Gowanus recycling tube bar && more :: many collaborations w// sextantworks
