Surf 'n' Turf
Flatmo's "Surf 'n' Turf," another kinetic sculpture in the Arcata Kinetic Lab in Arcata, on June 15, 2006.
PontoonAs part of the kinetic sculpture races, machines have to ford water. Here, Flatmo demonstrates a pontoon on "Extreme Makeover."
Flatmo is one of the pre-eminent practitioners of kinetic sculpture racing, a pastime that started informally in Arcata in 1969 and now is celebrated with a giant three-day event involving dozens of entrants each Memorial Day weekend.
