Rube Goldberg Machine for OK Go

I had the unique experience of being part of the Syynlabs team for the second “This Too Shall Pass” music video for OK Go. They hired us to design and build a massive Rube Goldberg-style machine that would play along with their music in one unbroken sequence from start to finish. We took over a 10,000 square foot warehouse in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles for a few months and built our contraption using everything from mouse traps to an Upright piano. The result is over three minutes of gravity-fed chaos.
