These Art Sculptures Are Walking At The Dutch Coastline On Their Own
Dutch artist Theo Jansen creates kinetic art sculptures as he builds 3D mechanisms called Strandbeest, which has a meaning of beasts roaming by the beach. Made from plastic yellow tubes resembling animal skeletons, Strandbeest moves as the wind blows, and it seems as though these “beasts” have brains of their own. The sculptures are the fusion of art and engineering, as Jansen says, “The walls between art and engineering exists only in our minds.” Jansen’s works are so impressive because Strandbeest has a primitive logic to move in reverse when they sense water or loose sand. Apart from that, these “beasts” has the ability to moor themselves to the ground as the storm approaches. It is indeed incredible and inspiring!
