Strandbeests

This one minute video produced by BMW is a nice introduction to the work of Theo Janssen who is both an engineer and an artist. He builds kinetic sculptures that “live” on the Danish Strand beach. They capture their energy from the wind and use it to live on the dynamic strip of land between the sea itself and the dry sand of the beach. At the end of the video, the Youtube UI presents you with a host of other possible selections. Click around or you can visit Janssen’s website Strandbeest.
