Improv Everywhere

Improv Everywhere is a constant source of inspiration for me. They are the guys organizing huge collaborative happenings in public spaces (mostly NY). You probably saw them “frozen” in Grand Central Station. Their latest project is not their most successful work to date (largely due to the rain) but I am amazed and inspired by the sheer number of people excited to come together for the sake of creating something (even in the rain).

The goal this time was to send flashes of light across the Brooklyn Bridge! 700 people showed up and lined the bridge!

Take a look at the video to see how they did!
