This visual and narrative archive encompasses all the enthralling stories, people and things i come across in my wanderings.
I discovered Strandbeests quote a while ago. But every time they cross my path again i marvel anew.
Theo Jansen is a kinetic sculptor from the netherlands. From his website: “Since about ten years Theo Jansen is occupied with the making of a new nature. Not pollen or seeds but plastic yellow tubes are used as the basic matierial of this new nature. He makes skeletons which are able to walk on the wind. Eventually he wants to put these animals out in herds on the beaches, so they will live their own lives.”
This is the TED talk, that introduced me to Strandbeests.
