In conjunction with the Exploratorium exhibition Strandbeest: The Dream Machines of Theo Jansen the celebrated Dutch artist shares the process of evolving his marvelous kinetic sculptures over the last twenty years.
Born in the Netherlands, Theo Jansen first studied physics but left to pursue what became a lifelong career in art—especially art explored through technology. Among his early projects, he built a machine that could paint and staged a convincing UFO encounter over Delft. Today, Jansen continues to create strandbeests at his workshop in Ypenburg, near Delft.
