Theo Jansen is a Dutch artist who builds walking kinetic sculptures that he calls a new form of life. His “Strandbeests” walk the coastline of Holland, feeding on wind and fleeing from water.
The walking sculptures are made of plastic yellow tubes and look alive as they move, each leg articulating in such a way that the body is steady and level.
The artist has been working for 16 years to create these amazing sculptures. Each generation of his “Strandbeests” is subject to the forces of evolution.
