As I mentioned in an earlier post
, I've been helping out with a friend'
s project to build a kinetic sculpture based on Ernest Hemingway's "A Moveable Feast." While it's been a few months in the making, this past weekend we finally did our first public ride, complete with a full brunch course! Here's a few photos and titles to give you the gist of things!
|Here's the under-carriage showing how the 3 people on each side contribute to forward motion.|
|This is the rear end of the machine, showing the leaf-spring suspension, drive chains, and transmission/differential.|
|Here, OS is hanging and lighting the chandelier!|
We appeared at the end of this CBS news segment:
|Once we arrived at the parade and set the table, the photographers couldn't get enough!|
|Underway, with a stilted-spectator, and the parade fans.|
|This gives an idea of the peddling, size of the wheels, etc.|
|Celebrating a wonderful morning brunch, with the fans!|
|We ended up winning the only award in the parade: the Czar's Trophy for Best Overall Entry!|
