These Stunning Pieces of Art Literally "Walk" on the Beach Themselves
If you’re looking for art that surprises you in innovative ways, then meet Theo Jansen. He creates almost living art—that is, wind-powered sculptures that appear to be animals in the wild. Jansen sketches out and then builds these massive and intricate objects, Strandbeest, using mostly plastic tubes and fabric. Harnessing the power of the wind, these clumsy-looking contraptions roll gracefully in the sand with a mesmerizing gait. If you see something moving on the beach next time you’re in the Netherlands, it may be a Strandbeest that was let loose forever.
