Moving Art

Dutch kinetic energy artist and engineer, Theo Jansen, started in 1990 to create contemporary motion sculpture energized by the wind. I watched movies of his kinetic inventions several times and became more fascinated each time! The skeletal art reacts to the environment through wind and stored wind energy. Mr. Jansen also makes his compositions sense the edge of the water at the beach and react to an approaching storm.
Watch the video to see how the kinetic energy sculptures are made and work. The compositions of Mr. Jansen are fun to watch.
Leave a comment to let me know what you think.
Enjoy! Joan
