Inspiring Creativity—Theo Jansen’s Strandbeests

Check out the amazing creations of kinetic sculptor and artist Theo Jansen. These giant beach animals move independently along the shore.

Be sure to watch to the 45-second point, when the creatures start walking down the beach. I’m always impressed by the many wonderful ways people find to express their creativity!

    This blew away both Moochie and me. They look like underwater creatures. It was great to see how they evolved. I wonder what’ll happen next. (Hey, good metaphor, Sandy.)

    I have watched this video several times. These creations are incredible. And I’m also fascinated by Jansen’s ideas about them living on in the future on their own. That concept raises some interesting artistic and philosophical questions…
