The Ultimate Kinetic Wind Art!!

Video from KarmaTube

I was fascinated by this incredible artist.  He has spent his life creating self-sufficient moving “beings” powered only by the wind.  How mindblowing would it be to see these “creatures” walking on the beach!

Beautiful art can inspire a person to see life in a totally new way. Theo Jansen is the Dutch creator of what he calls “Kinetic Sculptures,” where nature and technology meet. Essentially these sculptures are robots powered only by the wind.

Amazingly, these machines are made completely of recycled items. The ‘stomach’ of the sculpture is made with retired plastic bottles that capture the air pumped by the wind. To harness the wind, Jansen employs bicycle pumps, plastic tubing and rubber rings! Witness beauty through ingenuity 🙂
