Kinetic Steam Works will host dynamic demonstrations of steam power with a collection of repurposed vintage equipment driving interactive sculptures just days before their appearance at the Coachella festival in the Palm Springs desert.
An Auxiliary boiler, assorted mill engines, and a 1920 Case traction engine are the force behind a collection of awe-inspiring and personally engaging sculptures including a hand fabricated working carousel by Jamie Vaida, brass instruments plumbed with falling water and rising steam by Stephen Rademaker, a towering 22’ tall fire and waterfall by Orion Fredrick, and a live performance by spygirl and Sean Orlando. “The Dingus Smashing Show” uses a 1920’s ironworker to crush anything placed between its gears, a gross example of juvenile delinquency at it’s most entertaining.
