Friday: Kinetic Sculpture Derby & DesignPhiladelphia @ 2424 Studios

derby_logoEvery year, the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby brings with it some of the wildest, craziest contraptions ever to parade through Philadelphia. Don’t believe me? A search on Flickr results in some fantastic photos. Have a look.

Well, this year, DesignPhiladelphia is hosting the KKSD at 2424 Studios. After all, the Sculpture Derby certainly has a lot to do with design and the arts. The exhibit will feature photo and sculpture displays from past derby teams, with presenters talking in a Pecha Kucha fashion; 20 seconds, 20 slides, ensuring brief (and often hilarious) presentations.

Presenters include Vin Marshall (responsible for the pirate ship and pink tank sculptures), the 2009 People’s Choice Winner Zombish Team, Kathryn Doherty-Chapman (the organizer of the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby), Andy Dyson of Neighborhood Bike Works, Bradley Litwin, and Billy Dufala of the Toilet Trike Race.
