Massive Inanimate Beasts Are Walking Around On Beaches Across the Globe
Theo Jansen, a Dutch physicist and artist, has created the STRANDBEESTs, a collection of inanimate beasts that feed off the wind to move and come to life! Theo affirms that his animals are alive in their own sense, training them in his wind lab where they practice walking around and are exposed to the elements until they’re ready to go live on their home environment of the beach. These creatures that often exceed 12 feet in height are created from light plastic tubing with an intricate water bottle and bicycle pump system to act as their stomach.
Jansen truly believes that these constructions of his will be able to live by themselves on beaches in the future, as they progressively get better at surviving the elements. He plans to place them in herds and let them make their own lives on the beaches he will leave them on. Read more on his website where he goes into detail about the systems he uses in his beasts!
