Landmark on Location: Weather Troubles with MIT Video Barge

Posted in Landmark on Location Videos

 

One of the most harrowing installs we’ve had: MIT’s video barge was to float on the Charles River for five days. With unusually windy weather, we had to de-inflate and re-inflate the balloon to prevent damage. Thanks to some quick thinking and fast action, the end result was simply one of the coolest things we’ve seen.

"[There was] fun, excitement, and encouragement for everyone to actually walk under/through [the arch] and it worked.  We have cheerleaders and small children at the finish line by the arch handing out stickers, saying ‘I did it.’ Before we had the arch, [people] would straggle in anywhere."
