Springboard Collective (NYC) produces collectively authored social sculptures. Their projects embody familiar references yet are provocative in their scope, site specificity, and their deviation from expectations associated with any real-life counterparts. Springboard creates space that encourages participation and brings people together in unique shared experiences. The collaboration is co-directed by Danny Crump, Sarah Dahlinger, and Micah Snyder.
