This week in the magazine, Ian Frazier writes about Theo Jansen, a Dutch artist who makes kinetic sculptures that walk on the beach called Strandbeests.

Jansen’s Strandbeests—“beach animals,” in Dutch—are essentially accumulations of stiff plastic tubes, but, animated by the wind, they assume a shiver-inducing air of autonomy. “The Strandbeests themselves have let me make them,” Jansen says.

“The walls between art and engineering exist only in our minds.” – Theo Jansen

Theo Jansen the merging of art and engineering

Theo Jansen is an artist from Netherlands. But not any kind of artist! He creates sculptures, or skeletons, as he calls them, that walk on wind! By using yellow plastic tubes, the artist attempts to create new forms of life. Over time he was able to make structures more resistible to wind and water. Theo Jansen's ultimate aim is to release these beautiful animals on to the beach and let them lead their own lives! Visit the artist's website: http://www.strandbeest.com/
