Flux Factory,NYC

Produced by Springboard Collective

One Spa on a Time was a 60-hour spa resort installation built in Flux Factory’s gallery complete with a dry sauna, outdoor shower, tanning bed, and relaxation lounge. Amenities included spa robes, towels, UV-protective eyewear, custom tanning stickers, peppermint salt scrub, cucumber masks, and a menu of refreshments and healthy meals. Special programming throughout the 60 hours included afternoon yoga with Michael O’Malley, an overnight 6-hour durational audio performance by Man Bartlett, late-night performances by Seth Timothy Larson, Michael O’Malley, and Jaimie Warren, and afternoon cool-down yoga with Emily Melander. Visitors to the spa could stay as long as they liked; most stayed for a couple hours, others came back for more sessions, and a few stayed for the entire 60 hours.
