Looking to build and race your own kinetic sculpture in the DC area? Don’t mIss the Artomatic 500 on Saturday, June 27:

Racers and crew are invited to create a cardboard “vehicle” which could be two dimensional, three dimensional — even four dimensional if you can make it happen — as long as it it entirely powered by a walking or running human and is decorated by the driver and his or her team. No engine or propulsion system of any sort is allowed. Wheels are optional. In fact, they are discouraged.

Word is that you should bring your own refrigerator box if you’re so inclined.

The Artomatic site has lots of info, and check out their Flickr pool.
