Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2015 Race Report: Unless



Here's a Sculpture!
< Previous Page Next Page >

Unless

Unless… cites the final page of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax that unless someone cares, the situation will not improve.

The front and back showed the Baltimore skyline and harbor populated by brown bar-ba-loots, swomee swans, humming fish, and thickets of truffula trees.

The team planted a Kinetic time capsule and trees in Patterson Park.

While the craft did well on water and through sand and mud (with a bit of pushing), the chains caused trouble on pavement, and broke in Patterson Park. The unstoppable crew pushed Unless… to the finish line, coasting down hills.

Unless was sponsored by the Baltimore Forestry Board, Baltimore Tree Trust, Blue Water Baltimore, the Parks & People Foundation, Tree Baltimore, Treekeepers, Weed Warriors, the Baltimore Office of Sustainability, and Union Craft Brewery.
