Strandbeests: The Kinetic Beach Walkers Powered by the Wind

Made from thin PVC tubing, voyages, and an untold number of zip ties; Theo Jensen’s STRANDBEESTS( Dutch for’ beach animals’) have been making awe and amazement for the last few decades.

Jensen’s extraordinary individuals have travelled to beaches around the world and their complex and hypnotizing changes are based on an algorithm he designed. Harmonizing to The New York Times:

Adept at both drawing and math, Jansen put in seven years at Delft University of Technology on the physics road. But then he realized that he was never going to be happy a

’working as a robot for Philips electronics, ’a

and thereafter he generated himself over entirely to the more a

’hippieish’a

quests of music-making and cover that had been calling out to him all the while.

Jensen’s beach animals will appear next in Okinawa, Japan from October 3- November 11, 2017. If you would like to learn more about how the creatures cultivate be sure to check out STRANDBEEST.COM. Below you will find photographs and videos of Jensen’s amazing inventions.
