These Kinetic Sculptures Enjoy Long Walks on the Beach

If we find something interesting, we try to share it! Check out some past inspiration, here. 


These fascinating kinetic sculptures are created by Dutch artist Theo Jansen. Created using lightweight pipes, string, and fabric, STRANDBEEST harnesses the power of the wind and converts it into a steady forward march.

The sculptures crawl across the sand in an almost insect like way. Even though these are constructed of fairly mundane components, when they come together they create something seeming so alien.
