Idea Code 16686

Since 1990 Theo Jansen has been engaged in creating new forms of life, most notably in the form of skeletal beach animals. These forms are not made of protein, but of plastic tubing, and are able to walk with energy absorbed from the wind. Gradually evolving over several generations, these creatures are becoming more adept at coping with their beach environments – the creator hopes that they will eventually reach a level of independence and self sufficiency. Here the riveting story of Jansen and the evolution undergone by his creations is told.
