Theo Jansen’s Strandbeesten October 7, 2006Posted by Unreasonable in Uncategorized.
The Animaris Rhinoceros Transport is a type of animal with a steel skeleton and a polyester skin. It looks as if there is a thick layer of sand coating the animal. It weighs 2 tons, but can be set into motion by one person. It stands 4.7 meters tall. Because of its height it catches enough wind to start moving.
For fourteen years Theo Jansen has been working on creating a new life-form. These creatures consist of walking skeletons made of yellow electricity tubes. These skeletons are wind powered…. Eventually he wants to put these animals on the beach where they will lead their own lives.
