“Since 1990 Theo Jansen has been engaged in creating new forms of life: the so called Strandbeests. These are not made of protein like existing forms of lives but they’re made of another basis stuff; yellow plastic tubes. Skeletons made from these tubes are able to walk. They get their energy from the wind. They evolved over many generations, becoming increasingly adapt at surviving storms and water from the sea. In redoing this creation, he hopes to become wiser in dealing with the existing nature by encountering problems the real Creator had to face.”
