Theo Jansen

Before I get into this I need to say something. I am not going to be building anything on this scale..... yet.

Theo Jansen is a kinetic sculptor from The Netherlands. His works are part art, part engineering marvels. His Strandbeests are massive skeletal sculptures that lumber across beaches, powered by nothing but wind. Despite their behemoth sizes they are remarkably light weight, being built out of plastic tubing and paper. His materials and subject matter relate to my thesis in that he is creating organic forms with mostly inorganic materials.

And now for some photos ad videos.
