The Sand Beast

Tonight's post is a strange fusion between kinetic art and engineering. The Dutch Designer (Theo Jansen) has this sense he is creating another life form. A life form he hopes will evolve and move of its own volition. Quite a beautiful and fascinating video really . The long bleak wintery coastline sets the tone for his creations to roam. Propelled by wind and momentum you almost get the sense they are like crabs scuttling along a beach. Should you wish to view more on his fascinating work simply go to YouTube and google his name.
