Theo Jansen's Strandbeests

Post by Fat Cat »



Numerous specimens of the Strandbeest evolution, set to the music of Khachaturian's Spartacus. It open the archives of fossils. Theo Jansen's work since 1990. He tries to make new forms of live on beaches. His animals get their energy from the wind so they don't have to eat. In the future he wants to put out in herds.

Love those things.

Reminds me of Conway's Game of Life which almost gave me a nervous breakdown when I first saw it. I still prob think about it once a week.
