Oxford Kinetics Festival: Flying Whirligigs Edition

55

The Oxford Kinetics Festival started five years ago as an opportunity for the maker community to create things that move. Organizers and local sculptors Rod Northcutt and Kate Currie describe the April 19 jamboree as “a day when art gets mechanical, science gets creative, and the people you thought were normal turn out to be freaks.” In addition to The Dogs’ Breakfast—billed as an “alley-cat style race through Oxford on human-powered contraptions”—and the Tall Bike Biathlon, this year’s theme is “Flight of the Flier.” We chatted with three festival participants planning to take their creations to the skies.
