Over the Top

Steven White

“Over The Top” is a two-person Ferris wheel powered by the riders, using their arm muscles to shift their weight.  Standing 20 feet tall and made of plywood, this is a truly unique machine in looks and function.  It was conceived and built to answer two questions:  “How much fun can you have without a motor?”, and “How beautiful can a machine be?”
