Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race
2010 Race Report: The Creature from the Landsdowne Lagoon

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

The Creature from the Lansdowne Lagoon

The Creature from the Lansdowne Lagoon arose from Lansdowne High School’s Student Government, Arts & Communication Academy and Engineering, Science & Info Tech Academy. It bears a wide variety of trash removed from the school-side pond.

A lantern lure dangles out of its head as predatory bait, just as on an anglerfish.

The Ramp Master reveals some angst while clearing The Creature for the water entry, perhaps foreseeing that it would immediately steer into the rocks. For their turmoil on the water, they won the Golden Flipper award for the “most interesting water entry”.

Once a rope was securely attached, a pit crew member kept the Creature on a short leash to ensure it did not deviate further from the racecourse.

Early in the morning, the team prepared for the athletic rigor of the race with a stretching regimen—including one member with a colossal green dorsal fin.

Après race, the sculpture stowed compactly atop a minivan.
