I imagine the work of Dutch artist and kinetic sculptor Theo Jansen has appeared countless times on blogs and websites, just google the man and you get a fair idea how many people have commented on his work. Since 1990 he has been occupied creating new forms of life, and judging by his recent work I’d say he’s almost there.
For anyone not familiar with Theo’s work he builds large skeletons which resemble animals and are able to walk using the wind on the beaches of the Netherlands. He also did this BMW advert where he talks about his work. See it here.
