Theo Jansen’s Sand Beast – Video
Theo Jansen is an engineer – but he’s also an artist: he’s a kinetic sculptor. The dutch genius (I use that word with complete faith in its accuracy – and you will, too, once you see this video) uses his love of engineering and art to create huge “beasts,” for lack of a better word. Using mainly old paper and plastic, he somehow creates these gigantic, wind-powered creatures that move entirely on their own without any mechanics. Wind, old paper, and old plastic? Seems like a good use of recycling and natural energy to me! Way to create such beauty in such an eco-way!!
