      Conrad Milster, Pratt Institute’s chief engineer, has worked in the Brooklyn power plant nearly his entire adult life. Starting as a mechanic in 1958, he later became one of only four chief engineers in the plant’s 127-year history, taking over the official duties in 1965. He’s been there ever since. For the last six decades, Milster (now 79 years old) has lovingly maintained the nineteenth century steam engines that provide heat and hot water to Pratt’s campus. “We have our hands full,” says Milster. “If the plant stops in the winter, Pratt stops.” In addition, Conrad is the person behind the infamous “Pratt Cats,” responsible for the 12-14 felines that wander the campus and call the steam plant home. An important figure in Pratt’s history, Milster has extended his impact on the Pratt community through a generous gift—the Phyllis and Conrad Milster Endowed Scholarship—that provides scholarships in perpetuity to students in Pratt’s Industrial Design program. The scholarship is named for Milster and his late wife, Phyllis, who passed away in 2011. --- Filmed by Dustin Cohen, Autumn Eakin, and Christine Ng. Edited by Saela Davis.

                  I am creator, I wrote a song to deal with 'an ex' - that is an ex-employer. This is a touching meditation in a modern synth-rock setting of a modern conundrum to follow ones Art and make the rent - and the struggle to balance those poles and what happens when we make the choice? A koan can be a question, or statement, the meaning of which cannot be understood by rational thinking - but may be accessible through intuition or lateral thinking. When I meet one particular colleague from my ex-workplace I sometimes ask a version of that question to him: did humpty fall or was he pushed? I suppose my koan reflects my shock into my artistic awareness and allowed me to begin to create full time. This is one of the products of this artistic spasm. LAUGHJOHNLAUGH! is songwriter, artist and performer based in Brooklyn NYC. Video shot on location in NYC and Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. John Produced/co-directed/drew animations and captions. Song produced by Peter Litvin and video shot and edited by Greg DeLiso - monroviapictures.com
