theo

Theo Jansen has been creating new forms of life as he describes in his talks. As a phycist/artist he crafts magnificent “living machines” built of yellow tubes, pump-bottles, textiles and hosepipes. Using the force of the wind and the study of joint movements (kinetics), these biomophic organisms has been walking in the shores of the Netherlands and hundreds of exhibitions and perfomances in public spaces and museums around the world.  His philosophy: keep evolving new creatures capable of live their own lives.
