Kinetic Sculptures - Theo Jansen, New Strandbeest

Simply incredible >> Theo Jansen is an engineer and artist. He makes "dynamic" sculptures, to me it's like a robot - powered only by wind. A lot can be learned from here. One type of his sculpture robots is called "beach beast".

Theo Jansen is a renowned Dutch artist who creates kinetic sculptures out of plastic tubes, that are more creature than art. He places these wind powered beasts on the coast and lets the wind give them a life of their own. A mix between engineering and art, they are entirely wind powered, and will shamble along without any need for direction or internal power sources.

Whether sculptures are kinetic or static, gritty and down to earth, or large and exotic, wind powered sculptures bridge the boundaries between man and nature.

Ruimte omvattend: Een vorm die ruimte inneemt, maar waarbij de ingenomen ruimte toch zichtbaar blijft. Bijvoorbeeld omdat de vorm doorzichtig of skeletachtig is, of omdat je in de vorm kunt kijken.

Dutch artist Theo Jansen artificial animal-like structures. They walk on the beach, driven by the wind.

In the tradition of Dutch landscape but in a modern way comes Theo Jansen's Strandbeests (beach animals), kinetic sculptures that actually walk on the beach.
